HG MS-09R-2 Rick Dom II English Manual and Color Guide

HG MS-09R-2 Rick Dom II Construction Manual and Color Guide

The venerable MS-09R-2 Rick Dom II that was made into a beautiful 1/144 High Grade kit by Bandai. This green version came out for a brief instance in the Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket series. The Rick Dom II is a variant of the original MS-09R Rick Dom which itself was an outer space variant of the MS-09 Dom.

I always loved the design of the Rick Dom, actually bought an MG kit of the Rick Dom but "lost" it in the post office. Will hopefully have the chance to purchase this beautiful kit again in the future. I see a lot of customization being done with the Rick Dom model kits that I see in the internet. It must be because of its design that makes it a nice model kit to detail up. Specifically because of its size there is a lot of area to work with, like adding panel lines and add-ons.

The HG Rick Dom II is selling for 1099 yen at Amiami, 1500 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 1050 yen at HWJapan.
