EX Model: Red Tail Mono Carrier English Manual & Color Guide

EX Model: Red Tail Mono Carrier English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Considered a very old kit already as it was released in 2002 by Bandai was the 1/72 Red Tail Mono Carrier belonging to Faye Valentine from the Cowboy Bebop anime. The Red Tail is a flying vehicle with machine guns on both flanks of its fuselage. Its bulbous canopy reminds me a lot of the OV-1 Mohawk that flew in the 60's during the Vietnam War.

I've always loved the designs of the vehicles in Cowboy Bebop. They look hip, stylish and pragmatic in my eyes. But of course that's just one of the appeals of the series as the anime is truly a great story and if you hadn't watched it yet I'd recommend you do. Rather than wait for the rumored Keanu Reeves starring Live Action movie.

Faye Valentine's Red Tail was was selling for $43.50 at Amazon, 3500 yen at Hobbylink Japan
