HG Unicorn Gundam 2 Banshee Norn (Unicorn Mode) English Manual & Color Guide

HG Unicorn Gundam 2 Banshee Norn (Unicorn Mode) English Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Bandai comes the Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn (Unicorn Mode) from Gundam Unicorn OVA released as a 1/144 High Grade Model Kit. The Banshee at this part of the OVA is piloted by Riddhe Marcenas after its former pilot Marida Cruz was rescued by the Neo Zeon forces together with Banagher Links. I have to admit that I prefer this conventional design of the Banshee 2 as compared to the previous clawed one. This would definitely look good as an 1/100 Master Grade version.

The 1/144 HG Unicorn Gundam 2 Banshee Norn (Unicorn Mode) is selling for $ at Amazon, 1360 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1445 yen at Hobby Search
