HG Kerberos BuCUE Hound English Manual & Color Guide

HG Kerberos BuCUE Hound Construction Manual & Color Guide

The dreaded Kerberos BuCUE Hound from the Gundam Seed Stargazer series of shorts was released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai in 2006. I liked how this mecha was portrayed in the series, their pack tactics were scary and gruesome as heck, just ask Mudie Holcroft.

The HG Kerberos BuCUE Hound is selling for 1100 yen at Amiami
