HG Nemo (Desert Color Unicorn Ver.) English Manual & Color Guide

HG Nemo (Unicorn Ver.) Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released last November by Bandai was the Desert Color version of the venerable Nemo mobile suit from Gundam UC as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. I remember the first time I saw an MS in desert camouflage was during the Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory series. I was immediately smitten by the color scheme. Of course I also have a soft spot for cannon fodder mobile suits because of the utilitarian nature of their design.

The HG Nemo (Desert Color Unicorn Ver.) is selling for $19.20 at Amazon, 1090 yen at Amiami, 1200 yen at HobbyLink Japan
