MG Delta Plus English Manual & Color Guide

MG MSN-001A1 Delta Plus Color English Translation Guide & Manual

Riddhe Marcenas' Delta Plus from the Gundam Unicorn OVA made into a 1/100 Master Grade model kit by Bandai. Riddhe transitioned from the ReZel into the Delta Plus. Prior to the Master Grade version, Bandai already released a High Grade version of the Delta Plus.

Looking at the complexity of the parts and the manual I realized that this model kit is truly an amazing kit because it captures very well the details of the Delta Plus. One reason why I like the Delta Plus is because it captures the design of Char Aznable's Hyaku Shiki. The difference being that the Delta Plus can transform to Wave Rider mode that allows it to re-enter the atmosphere and of course, fight as a mobile armor.

The 1/100 MG MSN-001A1 Delta Plus is selling for $44.80 at Amazon, 3270 yen at Amiami, 3600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3825 yen at Hobby Search

MG MSN-001A1 Delta Plus Color English Translation Guide & Manual

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the Master Grade MSN-001A1 Delta Plus was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla Review Site. For the meaning of the symbols found in the model kit's manual, kindly refer to this older post.

I'll apologize before hand if there are some mistakes made in the translation of the transformation sequence to wave rider mode, because this is really a complicated kit to build and transform as based on the manual. It's difficult on my part to try and understand what the guy who made the manual is actually trying to say without the actual kit before me. Not so easy really when a single word can have 10 or more meanings, plus the context of use has to be factored in. Can't blame the writer either, as on the part of the writer, he/she is trying to maximize the sentence to the space available so he/she will have to combine sentences that complicates it. My fallback is that as an "experienced" *snicker* model kit builder I have more or less an idea of what is trying to be said. So as always, please proceed with care and caution when building this or any other model kit.
