HG Gaplant TR-5 Hrairoo English Manual and Color Guide

HGUC ORX-005 Gaplant TR-5 Hrairoo Construction Manual and Color Guide

Never liked the Gaplant mobile armor that was first seen in Zeta Gundam, that was till I saw the Gaplant TR-5 Hrairoo variant that was made into a HGUC kit by Bandai. The Gaplant Hrairoo never made it into a Gundam anime series but rather was part of the Advance of Zeta: The Flag of Titans manga. Surprising what a coat of white paint and a little tweak here-and-there can do to shatter your long held paradigm *snicker*

Construction Manual and Color Guide were translated to English from the original Japanese color guide posted at Dalong.
