HG Gerbera Tetra English Manual & Color Guide

HG Gerbera Tetra Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released last month by Bandai was the awesome looking Gerbera Tetra from Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory. This release was as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. Cima Garahau piloted this particular mobile suit, I can't help but notice the way the red shade of this is similar to the shade that Char Aznable uses for his mobile suits, hence why he was referred to as the Red Comet.

The 1/144 HG Gerbera Tetra is selling for $ at Amazon, 1310 at Amiami, 1440 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1530 yen at Hobby Search
