1/100 Saviour Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

saviour.jpg

Yep, I'm still on my Gundam Seed Destiny "high", so I'm translating the color guide of Athrun Zala's Saviour Gundam. I kinda like the design of this Gundam and the way it can transform to Mobil Armor. Athrun Zala was assigned this Mobile Suit after formalizing his return to the PLANT armed forces: the ZAFT. After getting his bird he got assigned to special forces FAITH then was tasked to be part of the Minerva spaceship. He also mentored Shinn Asuka, who was piloting the Impulse Gundam at that time. He eventually got shot down riding this which paved the way for his eventual piloting of the Infinite Justice Gundam.

Color Guide and Construction Manual was translated to English from the manual posted over at Dalong
