HG Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L English Manual & Color Guide

HG Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released last month by Bandai is Gai Murakamo's Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L from the Gundam Seed Astray side stories as a 1/144 High Grade kit. I already have the 1/100 of this built. One downside of that kit was that it could easily topple because of the heavy tactical arms on its back. Good thing that Bandai decided to add a small stand to this kit to circumvent that problem. As mentioned for the umpteenth time already, the Astray is one of my most favorite designs to come out of the Gundam Seed Series... it looks like a bloody outdoor shoe! *snicker*

The HG Gundam Astray Blue Frame Second L is selling for $ at Amazon, 1240 yen at Amiami, 1360 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1445 yen at Hobby Search
