MG WD-M01 Turn A Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

WD-M01 Turn A Gundam Construction Manual and Color Guide

Haven't had the chance to watch Turn a Gundam yet, but definitely the WD-M01 Turn A Gundam is one of the weirdest Gundam designs in my opinion. According to its article at Wikipedia (credibility, hah!) the mobile suit was designed by Syd Mead who worked on Blade Runner. It was supposed to be a more realistic design of a mobile suit. Adding to the madness is a cow figure included in the kit.

The manual and color guide was translated to English from the original Japanese manual posted over at Dalong. More model kit color guides can be found here.

The MG Turn A Gundam is selling for 2660 yen at HWJapan, 3800 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 2788 yen at Amiami.
