HMM Godos English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 HMM RZ-014 Godos English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Kotobukiya released in November of 2011 the 1/72 Godos for their very impressive 1/72 HighEnd Master Model line of Zoids mecha. Although this looks like a cannon fodder unit in the Zoids Universe, I was actually quite surprised after reading the assembly manual that you can buid this as a commander variant by choosing the appropriate option parts in the kit. There is also an option to build the small flying boat craft from pieces of the Godos.

The 1/72 HMM RZ-014 Godos is selling for $ at Amazon, 2920 yen at Amiami, 3360 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3570 yen at Hobby Search

1/72 HMM RZ-014 Godos English Translation Color Guide & Manual

Construction Manual and Color Guide was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site. For the meaning of the symbols found in the model kit's manual, kindly refer to this post. Only one page in the assembly manual had some pertinent Japanese instructions in them, so that's the only page that was translated to English
