MG MS-09 Dom English Color Guide

dom.jpg

MS-09 Dom from the original Mobile Suit Gundam 0079 Anime series. This particular mobile suit was used by the Black Tristars and the kit comes with a 1/20 figure of Ortega from the said team.

From the MS-09 Dom the MS-09R Rick Dom decended. With the latter being a space variant. In lieu of the space rockets of the Rick Dom the original Dom had jet engines and was configured to function well in an earth atmosphere. Outwardly it differs from the Dom only slightly (backpack, feet, etc)

What I can't understand about the painting of this model kit is that the box art and the base color of the arms and legs are at a violet tinge, while in the color guide and the finished assembled sample its of a blue color.

The MG MS-09 Dom is selling for $39.99 at Amazon, 4000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3200 yen at Hobby Search
