HMM DPZ-10 Dark Horn English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 HMM DPZ-10 Dark Horn English Translation Color Guide & Manual
Dark Horn from Zoids made into a 1/72 HMM model kit by Kotobukiya which was released September of 2010. I just realized that I'm naturally inclined to Zoids because of two things it has in it that tickles my fancy: mecha and dinosaurs. Judging from the design of the Dark Horn, I'm assuming that its design was based on a Monoclonius. Compared to the earlier released Red Horn, the Dark Horn is more heavily armed, packing a plethora or guns, cannons and missiles all over its body.

The 1/72 HMM DPZ-10 Dark Horn from Zoids by Kotobukiya is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 4980 yen at Amiami, 5440 yen at HobbyLInk Japan, 5780 yen at Hobby Search
