U.C. Hard Graph E.F.G.F. M61A5 Main Battle Tank English Manual & Color Guide

1/35 U.C. Hard Graph E.F.G.F. M61A5 Main Battle Tank Semovente Group Color Guide & Manual
I've always loved the UC Hard Graph series of Bandai, most especially the M61A5 Main Battle Tank that they released in 2009. The model kits of the UC Hard Graph series aren't your garden variety Gunpla Snapfit kits as these more often than not require glue in order to build.

This particular model kit is 1/35 scale and if you are into armor and gunpla builds then this will be a fun kit for you. You won't be disappointed with the amount of detail and gimmiks that Bandai has put into this kit. The first time I saw this, it's twin cannon configuration reminded me so much of the Mammoth Tank from the Command & Conquer series of RTS, while its chassis and sandy brown color scheme reminded me of the Merkava main battle tank of Israel.

The M61A5 is the main battle tank of the Earth Federation forces. One thing I can't understand about this model kit is whether this belongs to the Earth Federation Forces or was it stolen by the Zeon Ground Forces. Main point of confusion for me is the box art drawing, why is there a Zaku behind the tanks? Is it supposed to be shooting at them or is part of their group? I should really take time out to read the back story on this...hehehe

The 1/35 U.C. Hard Graph E.F.G.F. M61A5 Main Battle Tank is selling for $ at Amazon, 6605 yen at Amiami, 7200 yen at HobbyLink Japan
