“The flames of war explode in the Middle East as two shadow forces unleash monstrous new weapons of mass destruction! But in a world in which giant robots are real, the most dangerous weapon of all lies buried within a human mind.” This is the intro to Gasaraki, an anime series released in 2000 by Sunrise Entertainment.

The series focuses on two types of TA’s (tactical armors) being developed in Japan and in the Middle East. This kit, the Shinden Armor, is the product of the Japanese Self Defense Force. It is the third kit in the series (the first two being the Raiden Armor and the Ishtar Mk. II). This kit was first released in 1998 and was reissued in 2008.

The kit is molded in black, dark gray, and blue styrene, along with rubber polycaps. A sheet of peel-and-stick labels are included so the builder can choose the number for the individual TA unit. A seated pilot figure is included for placement inside the unit, and a standing figure is also part of the kit.

Bandai’s instruction sheet features one page of full-color scenes from the series, three color pages of the completed model, and four pages of black-and-white instructions.

This is a neat kit, and with it being scaled in 1:35, it can be placed in a diorama with many of the currently-produced modern armor kits, and not have it look too out of place.

The completed kit stands about 7.5 inches high.
