HGUC MS-18E Kampfer English Manual & Color Guide

HGUC MS-18E Kampfer English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released in 2008 by Bandai was the 1/144 High Grade model kit of the MS-18E Kampfer from 0080 War in a Pocket OVA. One of the most spectacular looking Mobile Suit designs in my opinion. In the anime, this mobile suit was used by a Zeon infiltration unit to attempt to destroy a new Gundam prototype that was secretly being tested in one of the space colonies. In order to sneak it in they had smuggle it inside the colony unassembled. Bandai also released a Master Grade version of the Kampfer.

The 1/144 High Grade MS-18E Kampfer is selling for $19.10 at Amazon, 1320 yen at Amiami, 1440 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1530 yen at Hobby Search
