HG Zaku II "Psycho Zaku" English Manual & Color Guide Gundam Thunderbolt Ver.

HG Zaku II High Mobility Type

From the Gundam Thunderbolt manga come the Zaku II High Mobility Type "Psycho Zaku" Gundam Thunderbolt Ver. released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai. If there ever is a need to give an example for gorgeously excessive, then the Zaku II High Mobility Type "Psycho Zaku" fits the bill to a "T". Love the designs that come out of Gundam Thunderbolt because of the copious amount of armaments and the bulkiness of the mobile suits.
