1/100 GN-005 Gundam Virtue English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/100 GN-005 Gundam Virtue English Construction Manual
The heavy weapons specialist of Celestial Being in Gundam 00 Season 1, the GN-005 Gundam Virtue. The Gundam Virtue also housed a secret unit known as the GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh. This was piloted by Tierra Erde and in Season 1 of Gundam 00 was superceded by the Gundam Seravee in Season 2. Its different with the Seravee because the Virtue acts like a suit that is worn by Nadleeh, unlike the Seravee/Seraphim combo wherein Seraphim acts more like a separate Gundam unit entirely.

The 1/100 GN-005 Gundam Virtue Model kit is selling for 2931 yen at Amiami, 4000 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 2800 yen at HWJapan. 3rd party sellers at Amazon are selling it for $$$$.
