1/100 GN-008 Gundam Seravee English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/100 GN-008 Gundam Seravee from Gundam 00 Translated English Construction Manual

The GN-008 Gundam Seravee made its appearance in the first episode of Gundam 00 Season 2. Piloted by Tiera Erde it is the heavy weapons specialist of Celestial Being. Aside from packing a whallop with the myriad of GN Bazooka configurations it can do, it is the only Gundam equipped with a GN Shield to protect it from attack.

The Seravee also supercedes the GN-005 Gundam Virtue that was also piloted by Tiera in Gundam 00 Season 1. Like the Gundam Virtue, the Gundam Seravee also plays host to another Gundam. For the Virtue it was the Gundam Nadleeh, for the Seravee it is the super secrative GN-009 Gundam Seraphim.

The Gundam Seravee costs $$$ at Amazon, 3420 yen at Hobby Search, 2520 yen at HWJapan. At Amiami it costs 2637 yen. At Hobby Link Japan it costs 3600 yen.

Construction Manual of GN-008 Gundam Seravee was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong. Color Guide for the Gundam Seravee can be found here. More translated Color Guides & Construction Manuals can be found here.

In the translated manual there is a line that says "the inner side of the clear parts is the one that doesn't stick", Looking at it now, it seems that the better translation for this is: "the inner side is where the clear parts aren't attached."
