Gundam Models Perfect Catalogue Ver 1.0 is one of the best publications from
the Dengeki series. Although the 1/60 F-91 and the Gundam HCMs are included
in the book, the real gems in it include:

- 1/550 scale minatures from the Gundam Simulation Game released in the
  early 80s (OOP)

- samples of boxes that carried the old Bandai logo

- 1/30 Black Trinary MS-06R-1A foam bubble kit

- Various Model Info, Crossover, and MSV handbooks

- Gold plated kits that were released to commemorate the CCA film

- 100 million units sold commemorative edition autographed 1/144 Char's Zaku II

- Kyoshiro edition Gundam Fullarmor Type Custom (a variant of the FA Gundam
  from MSV - Kyoshiro is the manga character who came up with the MSV design
  of Perfect Gundam)

- Limited edition gold-plated 100 Shiki kits

- Zeta Gundam release of MSV kits

- Prototypes of the rejected designs of the ZZ and F-90M

- Musha Gundam kits

- 1/144 System Injection Full Color Models of OYW designs

- EXTRA RARE serially numbered 10th Anniversary Full Color Models

- Gold plated "Hyper Mode" G Gundam kits

- MicroGundams

- Original/discountinued cover art for 1/250 diorama sets

- Unreleased plastic kit of THE O, MS-11, and PMX-002

No real Gundam fans will be caught without this book!
