RG RX-78-2 Gundam English Manual and Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 Real Grade RG RX-78-2 Gundam English Construction Manual

The much awaited Real Grade RX-78-2 Gundam from Bandai that was released as part of the 30th anniversary of Gundam plastic model kits this year. Looking at the manual posted at Dalong I couldn't help but be amazed at the detail and engineering that they had put in this kit. Of course I had to hope that they also execute this kind of craftmanship in their 1/100 lines *snicker* It was also announced that the next kit in this line would be the Zaku II of Char Aznable.

The Real Grade RX-78-2 Gundam is selling for 2500 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1830 yen at Amiami, 2000 yen at Hobby Search.
