Mirage C01-GAEA English Color Guide

1/72 Mirage C01-GAEA Armored Core English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Released in 2005 and 2008 by Kotobukiya was the 1/72 Mirage C01-GAEA from the Armored Core video game. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first ever Armored Core kit released by Kotobukiya for their 1/72 line. The Mirage C01-GAEA stands approximately 16cm tall and is packed with an impressive set of weapons.

Disclaimer





Color Guide & Manual was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site. Didn't bother translating the rest of the manual because there wasn't really that much Japanese characters found in there. For the meaning of the symbols found in the Kotobukiya kit's manual, kindly refer to this older post.
