HG Zaku II Char Aznable ver. The Origin English Manual & Color Guide

HG Zaku II Char Aznable ver. The Origin Construction Manual & Color Guide

Char Aznable's iconic Zaku II from Mobile Suit Gundam the Origin released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai. I'm usually wary of reinterpretations of mobile suit designs that I've grown accustomed with, but with this I have to say that I am impressed with it's treatment. Kinda like those Gundam Thunderbolt redesigns.

The 1/144 High Grade Zaku II of Char Aznable is selling for $16.20 at Amazon.
