1/48 Mega Size Model RX-78 Gundam English Manual

1/48 Mega Size Model RX-78 Gundam Construction Manual

Finally got to see the innards of the 1/48 Megasize RX-78 Gundam that Bandai recently released to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Gundam Plastic Model kits. The RX-78 was the iconic mobile suit that ushered in the real-robot genre of anime production. A lot of Gundam's have been made but in one way or another they always pay homage to this first ever Gundam design.

The 1/48 Megasize RX-78 Gundam is selling for 5600 yen at Amiami and 7800 yen at Hobby Link Japan and 7800 yen at Hobby Search. 3rd party sellers at Amazon are selling it for $99.99

Construction Manual was translated to English from the original Japanese manual posted at Dalong. More info on the 1/48 Megasize Gundam can be found here.
