Frame Arms SA-17 Rapiere English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 Frame Arms SA-17 Rapiere English Translation Color Guide & Manual

I have to say that my interest in the Frame Arms original title line of Kotobukiya has been piqued after seeing the EXF-10/32 Greifen. So because of this I took at gander at the SA-17 Rapiere that was released earlier this year.

The Rapiere is a female form mecha and is based off the SA-16 Stylet. But I guess the correct term should be is that its an upgrade of that earlier design. The Rapiere is designed for agility and speed and comes packed with a Spiral Rifle and a Naginata.

The 1/100 Frame Arms SA-17 Rapiere is selling for $39.99 at Amazon, 2480 yen at Amiami, 3600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2880 yen at Hobby Search, $34.99 at Kotobukiya US.

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the 1/100 was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site. For the meaning of the symbols found in the Kotobukiya's model kit manual, kindly refer to this older post.
