RG Strike Freedom Gundam English Manual & Color Guide

RG Strike Freedom Gundam Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam Seed Desitiny is the iconic Strike Freedom Gundam of Kira Yamato which was recently released as a 1/144 Real Grade model kit by Bandai. The Strike Freedom Gundam succeeded the Freedom Gundam that was defeated in a duel against Shinn Asuka. Hands down one of the most beautiful Gundam designs ever released in my book. Those Dragoons just make it soooo perfect.


The 1/144 RG Strike Freedom Gundam is selling for $ at Amazon, 2240 yen at Amiami, 2400 yen at HobbyLink Japan
