HG Zaku II + Big Gun Set English Manual & Color Guide

HG Zaku II + Big Gun Thunderbolt Ver Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released a while back by Bandai was the Gundam Thunderbolt version of the Zaku II together with the Big Gun. This was released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. I always loved the Gundam Thunderbolt versions released by Bandai, because for a High Grade, the level of detail is just astounding.

The 1/144 High Grade Zaku II + Big Gun Set Thunderbolt ver is selling for $29.54 at Amazon. HG Zaku II + Big Gun Thunderbolt Ver Construction Manual & Color Guide
