HMM Gun Sniper Naomi Special w/ Wild Weasel Unit English Color Guide

1/72 HMM Gun Sniper Naomi Special w/ Wild Weasel Unit Color Guide

Naomi Fluegel's Gun Sniper Naomi from Zoids New Century Zero made into a 1/72 Highend Master Model by Kotobukiya. First time I saw Zoids New Century Zero was in Animax, I immediately fell in love with the series. One of my favorite characters of course was Naomi Fluegel and her Gunsniper. Then again, I've always had an affinity for sniping mecha's, as evidenced by the kits that I have in my model gallery.

The sniper rifle of the Gunsniper is actually the tail, which is extended and straightened out during firing. At this position it leaves the gunsniper in a very vulnerable position because the pilot assumes a prone position in the cockpit in order to aim the tail rifle.

The 1/72 HMM Gun Sniper Naomi Special is selling for $48.00 at Amazon, 3050 yen at Amiami, 4200 yen at HobbyLink Japan

Color Guide was translated to English from the Japanese Color Guide posted at Dalong's Model Kit review site. For the meaning of the symbols found in the manual, kindly refer to this older post.

Didn't bother to translate the manual anymore as there wasn't much Japanese characters found in there. I did however translate the few cells that had Japanese characters in them.
