HGUC Gundam Ez8 English Manual & Color Guide

HGUC Gundam Ez8 Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released this April by Bandai was the Gundam Ez8 from 08th MS Team OVA series as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. The 08th MS Team OVA is one of my favorite Gundam series. It brought a breath of fresh air into the Gundam franchise by introducing the Ground War aspect of the campaign and the need for team cooperation in fighting the war.
