HG Zaku I Sniper Type (Yonem Kirks) English Manual & Color Guide

HG MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type (Yonem Kirks) English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Yonem Kirk's Zaku I Sniper Type from Episode 4 of the Gundam Unicorn OVA. Such a tragic mobile suit the Zaku Sniper of Yonem Kirks was. For me, it was a character well played in Episode 4. Everytime I see a tragic sniper scene it reminds me so much of the heroic sacrifice of Sargeants Gordon and Shughart from the Battle of Mogadishu that were immortalized in Ridley Scott's Blackhawk Down movie.

The 1/144 HG MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type (Yonem Kirks) is selling for $ at Amazon, 1160 yen at Amiami, 1280 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1360 yen at Hobby Search. This particular model kit released by Bandai is of a 1/144 High Grade type.
