Frame Arms XFA-01 Werewolf Specter English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 Frame Arms XFA-01 Werewolf Specter English Translation Color Guide & Manual

One of the great things about the recently released 1/100 Werewolf Specter is that you actually get 3 model kits for the price of one. That's because it can be built as either the Werewolf Specter, the Type 38 Ryurai or the Type 32 Gourai. The Werewolf Specter was released last March as part of the 1/100 Frame Arms line of model kits by Kotobukiya.

If ever you get "Gundam"-fatigued already and are looking for an alternative mecha model kit builder, I'd recommend picking up a model kit by Kotobukiya for a fresh perspective. And of course, you can find some of their translated color guides and manuals here *snicker*

The 1/100 Frame Arms XFA-01 Werewolf Specter is selling for $ at Amazon, 2630 yen at Amiami, 3040 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3230 yen at Hobby Search.
