Bandai RG 1/144 MS-06F Zaku II English Manual and Color Guide

1/144 Real Grade RG MS-06F Zaku II English Construction Manual and Color Guide

The Mass Produciton MS-06F Zaku II from Mobile Suit Gundam gets made into a 1/144 Real Grade kit by Bandai. Prior to this the Crimson Zaku II of Char Aznable was already given the Real Grade treatment by Bandai. One feature of this Zaku II model kit is ability to build it as a commander/ace type with the addition of a larger antenna.

The release of the new line of Gunpla Kits by Bandai, known as Real Grade, was done during the 30th Anniversary of Gundam Plastic model kits last year. The Real Grade line differs from the 1/144 High Grade kits by being more rich in minute details and by having impressive flexibility. What also sets thems apart are the realistic decals that come with the kit.
