RG MS-06S Zaku II English Manual & Color Guide

Real Grade 1/144 RG MS-06S Zaku II English Color Guide and Manual

Released this month is the iconic MS-06S Zaku II of Char Aznable as a 1/144 Real Grade model kit. This makes it the second model kit released under the Real Grade line of Bandai. Prior to this was the release of the first ever Real Grade kit, the RX-78-2 Gundam.

Real Grade kits was announced this year in conjunction with the 30th Anniversary of Gundam Plastic model kits. They are different from the regular 1/144 High Grade kits in terms of having more detail and flexibility. Add to that are the realistic decals that come with the kit that are characteristic of the Real Grade line.

With the release of the Zaku II the question that boggles my mind right now is "what could be the next mobile suit to be rendered as a Real Grade kit?" A green Zaku II perhaps?
