HG Xekueins English Color Guide

HGUC RMS-141 Xekueins Color Guide
The RMS-141 Xekueins from Gundam Sentinel which existed during the Gundam ZZ timeline. One of the mobile suits that never made it into an anime series but was judged worthy enough to be made into a 1/144 High Grade Kit by Bandai. Was trying to figure out how to read the name of the mobile suit, good thing that the word Xekueins is spelled "Zekuain" in Japanese katakana at the manual.

Boy, I'd bet it would be nice to be part of the team that decides that. Scratch that, I would rather be part of the team that decides which products get released as a Master Grade product *snicker*

The drums on the shoulder house the ammunition for the belt fed machine gun, looks like a heavy machine gunner to me. Even if they don't make this into a 1/100 master grade kit, I wish they would make this as a 1/100 kit. I myself prefer non-grade 1/100 scale kits because of their size and because they're cheaper than the MG kit. Add to that also, that the countours of the suit's design give the modeller a lot of area to "detail-up" the kit.

The 1/144 HGUC RMS-141 Xekueins is selling for 1173 yen at Amiami, 1600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1280 yen at Hobby Search, 1120 yen at HWJapan, $39.99 at Amazon 3rd party sellers.
