1/100 Chaos Gundam English Color Guide

1/100 ZGMF-X24S Chaos Gundam Color Guide
Sting Oakley's ZGMF-X24S Chaos Gundam. Ok so its not exactly Sting Oakley's since he stole it from the ZAFT armory during the opening of Gundam Seed Destiny... hehehe. As a member of Phantom Pain, he snuck in together with Auel and Stellar to steal the Chaos, Abyss and Gaia Gundam. Its a nice looking Gundam though, with the mobile missile pods on its back that can detach and fly separately to attack an enemy. I can't seem to understand though why Bandai only rendered the Chaos Gundam in 1/100 grade and not the Abyss and Gaia. Maybe their 1/144 scale counterparts did not have enough sales volume to merit a 1/100 scale version?

Color Guide was translated to English from the manual posted at Hobby Search.
