HG RGM-79SP GM Sniper II English Manual & Color Guide

HG RGM-79SP GM Sniper II English Construction Manual & Color Guide
From Bandai comes the GM Sniper II released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. The GM Sniper II made its appearance in the Gundam 0080 OVA War in the pocket. Aside fromt he GM Sniper II, the kit also comes with a smaller Draken E mecha.

I have to be honest in saying that I don't remember the GM Sniper II in the OVA. I think I was too busy being overwhelmed by the awesomeness of the Kampfer. It was like only 3 (or was it 4?) years ago that I watched that OVA. In my opinion, it had a great story but came with a rather tragic ending, like most Gundam UC timeline releases.

The 1/144 HG RGM-79SP GM Sniper II is selling for $ at Amazon, 1200 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1275 yen at Hobby Search
