MG Jesta English Manual & Color Guide

MG Jesta Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released in April by Bandai, the 1/100 Master Grade Jesta from Gundam Unicorn. Prior to this the Jesta was already released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. Gundam LED lights can be installed to light up the head unit, this however is sold separately and not included with the kit. Definitely one of my most favorite designs to come out of the Gundam Unicorn Universe, primarily for that rugged look.

The MG Jesta is selling for $ at Amazon, 3200 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3400 yen at Hobby Search
