Frame Arms SA-17s Rapier Zephyr English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 Frame Arms SA-17s Rapier Zephyr English Translation Color Guide & Manual

From Kotobukiya's original 1/100 scale Frame Arms line of model kits is the SA-17s Rapier Zephyr. This model kit was released in November of 2011. Whenever I see the head design of this mecha I can't help but think of Harley Quinn *snicker* There is an option however in the kit to install a different head style design (mono craft or blade type).

Similar model kits in this line are the SA-17 Rapier, which was based off the SA-16 Stylet, which also has the SA-16d Khanjar as a variant.
