HG Zaku I Thunderbolt Ver English Manual & Color Guide

HG Zaku I Thunderbolt Ver Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam Thunderbolt manga comes the Zaku I Thunderbolt released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai. For a 1/144 High Grade kit, this has got have one of the most complicated Color Guides. Reminds me of the color guides of the 1/72 VF-25F Messiah's that were released a couple of years back. But despite that I love the mobile suit designs that come out of the Thunderbolt series. And aside from the designs, one other thing that I like about them is the level of detail that Bandai is able to put into them despite their small size. I am assuming this was the technology that was much touted by Bandai during the release of the Real Grade series.
