HG Psycho Gundam English Color Guide

HG Psycho Gundam Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released in 2004 as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai was the Psycho Gundam that was piloted by the Cyber Newtype known as Four in the Zeta Gundam anime series. In the anime series, the Psycho Gundam wasn't your average sized mobile suit as it was very gigantic. The Psycho Gundam and Four met a very tragic end and was one of the low points of that franchise for me.

The 1/144 High Grade Psycho Gundam is selling for $ at Amazon.

Color Guide for the 1/144 High Grade Psycho Gundam was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla & Model Kit Review site.
