1/72 Zoids RZ-013 Buster Tortoise English Color Guide & Manual

1/72 Zoids RZ-013 Buster Tortoise Color Guide

The 1/72 Buster Tortoise from Kotobukiya. Not really fond of this design because these types of zoids are not really frontline-edge-of-the-sword type of mechas. These are mostly back-end-in-the-rear-with-the-gear types. But they do pack a wallop with the weaponry they carry. More like mobile artillery pieces in the sphere of mech warfare which provide blanket support during an offensive maneuver.

Color Guide was translated from the manual posted over at Dalong's Model Kit Review site.
