HMM Gun Sniper Leena Special English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Gun Sniper Leena Special HMM English Color Guide & Manual

The fiery Leena Toros' Gun Sniper from Zoids New Century Zero made into a beautiful 1/72 HMM kit by Kotobukiya. I have to say that this Zoid definitely captured the spirit of Leena Toros. Which is a fun loving, hard hitting zoid pilot. And the reason she needs that much fire power is because she couldn't hit the broadside of a barn at point black range *snicker*

Watching Leena fire away with all guns blazing in her Gun Sniper during one episode made me remember the remark of Japanese World War II ace, Saburo Sakai, when he was out training pilots using live rounds. "Thats a trigger, not a broom stick!" Or something to that effect. I remember reading it in one of those Time Life books. At that time he was instructing rookie pilots to conserve ammunition by firing in bursts at the enemy.

The 1/72 Gun Sniper Leena Special HMM is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 3220 yen at Amiami, 3600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3825 yen at Hobby Search

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the 1/72 Gun Sniper Leena Special was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla Review site. This is not a complete manual as only the pages with Japanese characters in them were translated, I'd recommend having the actual manual that came with your kit in front of you when building this.
