HG Hi-Zack (Earth Federation Force) English Color Guide

HG Hi-Zack (Earth Federation Force) Color Guide

Can't believe that this kit is almost 10 years old, the 1/144 High Grade Hi-Zack (Earth Federation Force ver) by Bandai. This mecha came out of the Zeta Gundam franchise, based on the Zaku but used by the Earth Federation Force.

As a kid you'd probably be confused because you saw Zaku's and GM's facing off in the first series and now here they are playing well with each other. But then again you'd be confused too why the Good Guy Earth Government is now known as the Bad Guy. Pretty heavy stuff I think for a kid.

The 1/144 High Grade Hi-Zack (Earth Federation Force) is selling for $ at Amazon.

Color Guide was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Hobby Search. For the meaning of the symbols found in the model kit's manual, kindly refer to this post.
