HG Hi Nu Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 High Grade HGUC Hi Nu Gundam English Construction Manual and Color Guide
Definitely my most favorite Amuro Ray mobile suit, the Hi Nu Gundam from Beltorchika's Children. If you're a regular reader of this blog you're probably sick and tired of me saying that all the time *snicker*. Anyway, this is the 1/144 HGUC version of this model kit, there is also a MG Hi Nu Gundam released by Bandai.


Construction Manual and Color guide for the HGUC Hi Nu Gundam of Amuro Ray was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at the amazing model review site: Dalong.
