HG Neo Zeong English Manual & Color Guide

HG Neo Zeong Construction Manual & Color Guide

Massive is an understatement, Colossal would be more apt to describe the recently released 1/144 High Grade Neo Zeong by Bandai. The Neo Zeong was piloted by Full Frontal in the final episode of the Gundam Unicorn OVA. Plotwise I couldn't see the point in this massive behemoth for the story but as a mecha fan boy, who cares! Hahaha.

Love the design of this and not to mention the size! Of course, as stated in the manual, because of the size of this thing there were some well meaning caveats posted in the manual. Particularly how this should be placed in a stable place so that it doesn't get knocked down nor topple over. Most importantly on how this should be kept away from children. You could just imagine that this thing could easily hurt a child if ever it fell on one.

The 1/144 HG Neo Zeong is selling for $328.99 at Amazon.

Construction Manual & Color GUide for the 1/144 High Grade Neo Zeong was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site. For the meaning of the symbols found in the model kit's manual, kindly refer to this older post.
