Frame Arms Type 48 Model I Kagutsuchi-Kou English Manual & Color Guide

1/100 Frame Arms Type 48 Model I Kagutsuchi-Kou Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released in July by Kotobukiya was the 1/100 scale Type 48 Model I Kagutsuchi-Kou. This model kit comes from the original series of Kotobukiya which they called Frame Arms. The Frame Arms line is a collection of mecha based model kits that use a common skeleton frame known as the frame architect and from there detail parts are added onto it.

If you are looking for a new mecha based model kit to work on I'd suggest looking at the Kotobukiya line of model kits. Compared to Gunpla however its a bit pricey, but who knows?, if a lot of people are buying their kits then economies of scale kick in and Kotobukiya can afford to lower the price of their model kits.

The Type 48 Model I Kagutsuchi-Kou is selling for $ at Amazon, 2660 yen at Amiami, 3040 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3230 yen at Hobby Search
