HG Cherudim Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

HG GN-006 Cherudim Gundam English Translation Color Guide & Manual

In 2008 the 1/144 High Grade Cherudim Gundam was released by Bandai as part of the model kit line from Gundam 00 Season 2. Gundam Cherudim is the long range sniper of Celestial Being and is piloted by Lockon Stratos. Cherudim Gundam takes over the task that was once assigned to Gundam Dynames from Gundam 00 Season 1. I actually built and painted the 1/100 version of Gundam Cherudim, truly a beautiful model kit once I got the pose I liked from it.


The 1/144 HG GN-006 Cherudim Gundam is selling for 815 yen at Amiami, 960 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1020 yen at Hobby Search
