HG PMX-003 "The-O" English Color Guide

HGUC PMX-003

Paptimus Scirocco’s famous mobile suit in the Zeta Gundam, the PMX-003 "The-O" is just about ready to be released a couple of months from now as a Master Grade Kit with some shops already offering the MG "The-O" out for pre-order. Prior to that was the release of a 1/144 High Grade Universal Century (HGUC) kit of that very illustrious mobile suit by Bandai.

HGUC PMX-003

I thought it would be great to help people out who are thinking of buying The O to get an idea of what colors they would need to paint the master grade version by translating the color guide of the High Grade kit. Color Guide for the HGUC PMX-003 "The-O" was translated to English from the manual posted at Hobby Search. You can check out a great review of this HGUC kit at Dalong's Model Kit review site.

The HGUC PMX-003 "The-O" is selling for 1758 yen at Amiami, 2400 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1920 yen at Hobby Search, 1680 yen at HWJapan.

If you don't have the "moolah" to buy the MG version of "The-O" but have the "skillz" *snicker*. You can try joining HobbyLink Japan, Tomopop & HobbyLinkTV's Gundam Photography and Video Contest where they have a MG PMX-003 "The-O" as a grand prize. The contest is open for application/submission from June 16, 2010 to August 16, 2010 with winners being announced on August 31, 2010
