HG MS-06R-1A Zaku II Black Tristars English Construction Manual & Color Guide

Another brilliant release by Bandai, this time the 1/144 High Grade Zaku II of the Black Tristars.

Their back story was that they made their mark effectively piloting Zaku II's. Bandai already released a Master Grade version of this a couple of years back.
