HG Delta Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

HG MSN-001 Delta Gundam English Translation Color Guide & Manual

March got off to a good start with the release of the MSN-001 Delta from Mobile Suit Variations as a 1/144 High Grade kit by Bandai. Based off the venerable Hyaku Shiki of Quattro Bajeena, this mobile suit varies by being able to convert to a wave rider mode that gives it better manueverability and speed. Its quite expensive than your average garden variety High Grade kit, most probably due to the gold reflective color scheme that the kit has.

The 1/144 High Grade MSN-001 Delta Gundam is selling for $ at Amazon, 3050 yen at Amiami, 3360 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3570 yen at Hobby Search.
