its HGUC if anyone wants to know, painted in my interpretation of the SRW
Alpha color scheme - its body (core) didn't look blue in SRW Alpha but
rather dark grey-ish. Painted the thing (body) German Grey and it came out

not that I know of. Nagano is rather popular for the women and my
girlfriend says that his Hyaku-Shiki looks more shojo than most mecha, even
the ones from Wing.
