Nineball = Seraph Armored Core English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Nineball = Seraph Armored Core Color Guide & Manual
The 1/72 Nineball=Seraph was released in 2008 by Kotobukiya and is being re-released in March of this year. This model kit is part of the popular Armored Core game, which is also a model product line of Kotobukiya. What makes me like this design, aside from the color scheme and its lines, is the fact that it stands at over 21 cm in height
