HG FA-93HWS Nu Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 HGUC FA-93 Nu Gundam Heavy Weapons System (HWS) English Construction Manual and Color Guide
A redesign of the RX-93 Nu Gundam of Amuro Ray from the Char's Counter Attack anime series. Similar to what was done for the RX-93 Hi Nu Gundam for Beltorchika's children.

This version has the funnel system still on one side of the shoulder. I myself prefer the design of the RX-93 Hi Nu Gundam so for me if the bulkiness of the FA-93 HWS Nu Gundam were transferred to the Hi Nu Gundam I would definitely be in "Gundam Heaven." Which was exactly where I was at when I saw this 1/100 MG Resin Kit conversion at Hobby Fan for the MG Hi Nu Gundam to make it into a HWS.

According to the literature included in the manual the FA-93HWS Nu Gundam stands 22m, weighs 32.5 tons has a power output of 2980kw and is armed with a head vulcan gun, hyper mega rifle, shoulder missile launcher, high mega shield, beam rifle beam saber, new hyper bazooka and a shield

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the HGUC Nu Gundam HWS was translated to English from the manual posted at Dalong.
