HG Byarlant Custom English Manual & Color Guide

HG Byarlant Custom English Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam Unicorn OVA comes the Byarlant Custom which was released by Bandai as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. Before, I couldn't say that I loved the look of this mobile suit. But after seeing its fight scenes in the Gundam Unicorn OVA, where it made mince meat of its enemies, the design suddenly blew me away. Loved how the way it used the thrusters in its shoulder for maneuvering.


The 1/144 High Grade Byarlant is selling for $ at Amazon, 1890 yen at Amiami, 2080 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 2210 yen at Hobby Search
