HG Hi Nu Gundam Vrabe English Manual & Color Guide

HG Hi Nu Gundam Vrabe Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Build Fighters comes the Hi Nu Gundam Vrabe that was released by Bandai as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. In the anime, the Hi Nu Gundam Vrabe was piloted by Tatsuya Yuuki.

The Hi Nu Gundam is one of my most favorite Gundam designs (as depicted in Beltorchika's Children). So I was excited when Bandai decided to release a Master Grade Ver Ka of it last year. So far they did not disappoint.

The 1/144 Hi Nu Gundam Vrabe is selling for $ at Amazon.
