Interior Union Y01-Tellus English Manual and Color Guide

1/72 Armored Core Interior Union Y01-Tellus

The Interior Union Y01-Tellus from the Armored Core game made into a 1/72 model kit by Kotobukiya. I remember the first time I saw an Armored Core game, and this was in 2000 when the PS2 first came out.

I was in Japan at that time and a friend bought one of the first PS2's released. I remember being amazed with the design of the mechas. Then of course only recently I found out that Shoji Kawamori had a hand in the design of the mechas, so all the more I was impressed.

The 1/72 Armored Core Interior Union Y01-Tellus is selling for 3050 yen at Amiami, 3800 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3360 yen at Hobby Search

There were a few Japanese Kanji found in the manual, so I decided to just post and translate those said parts. Click on the images to enlarge.
