Frame Arms EXF-10/32 Greifen English Manual & Color Guide

Frame Arms EXF-10/32 Greifen English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released last month was the 1/100 EXF-10/32 Greifen from the Frame Arms original model kit line by Kotobukiya. I've always liked the well crafted mecha designs of the Frame Arms series and the Greifen does not disappoint, what with the well formed panel lines and surface details. For me, the beauty of a model kit is really defined by the amount of details crammed into the plastic part.

Frame Arms are a line of model kits made by Kotobukiya with interchangeable parts since the basic frame is the same. You can also scratch build your own by using just the well articulated body frame. Great mecha base to work with if you plan to build your own mecha kits from scratch since most of the basic parts are already there to begin with. Frame Arms also boasts of being compatible with the Modeling Support Goods (MSG) line of Kotobukiya which is a slew of option parts for detailing further your basic kit.

The 1/100 Frame Arms EXF-10/32 Greifen is selling for $$$ at Amazon, 3000 yen at Amiami, 3360 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3570 yen at Hobby Search
