RG Aile Strike Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

1/144 RG Aile Strike Gundam English Translation Color Guide & Manual

I was surprised when Bandai released for its 3rd model of the Real Grade line the Aile Strike Gundam of Kira Yamato from Gundam Seed. I was expecting the green cannon fodder Zaku II to be next in the real grade line after the release of the release of Char's Zaku II.

Bandai pulled a fast one over me with this development. Not that I'm saying that I don't like the design of the Aile Strike Gundam, just pleasantly surprised. As with the other Real Grade releases, this line of Gundam kits features highly detailed parts and panel lines, excellent articulation and realistic decals.

The 1/144 Real Grade Aile Strike Gundam from the original Gundam Seed anime is selling for $30.73 at Amazon, 2000 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2125 yen at Hobby Search
