Model Graphix (July 2024 issue Gouf edition) - Release Info

Model Graphix (Gouf edition) 
Release Date: May 24, 2024
Price: 980 Yen

Among the various mobile suits used during the One Year War, the Gouf stands out as one of the most stylish and popular. The intense bouts starring Ramba Ral in the anime never fail to thrill, no matter how many times they are seen. While this magazine previously featured the theme "Zaku is difficult!" in the May 2021 and September 2022 issues, one may ponder if it is equally difficult to make a Gouf. Indeed, the Gouf poses a distinct set of obstacles! This feature goes into the complexities and pleasure of building a Gouf Gunpla from beginning to end.



FEATURED CUSTOM GOUF

MG 1/100 MS-07B Gouf Ver.2.0 - Modeled by NAOKI


NAOKI has masterfully replicated the anime design of the Gouf in this Gunpla model. The distinctive features such as the edges of the mono-eye slits, the flat and wide chest, equally proportioned arms, sleek lower legs, and compact build have been meticulously captured. As shown in the intermediate photo on the left, this project doesn't involve extensive modifications. Instead, NAOKI focuses on the essential details to achieve an authentic look. For those aiming to create a Gouf that closely resembles its anime counterpart, this model serves as an excellent reference.

HGUC 1/144 MS-07B Gouf - Modeled by Nukki


The original HGUC Gouf (No. 009) captures the essence of the original MG model, which was designed similarly to the Gouf Custom. This model emphasizes a more massive feel and updates the movable gimmick through a mixing build. The result is a strong-looking Gouf with its slanted eyes and powerful form.


MS-07B Gouf RG Style Modification - Modeled by Tomohiro Horikoshi


When it comes to fully arranged and cool Gunpla, RG (Real Grade) is a top choice. However, an RG version of the Gouf has yet to be produced. Tomohiro Horikoshi tackled this by mixing and building the frame of the "RG Zaku II" with the exterior parts of HGUC No. 196, resulting in a detailed and impressive RG-style Gouf.

MG 1/144 MS-07B Gouf Ver.2.0 - Modeled by Yokoshima Miyuki


Yokoshima Miyuki, with ambitious goal of creating all Zeon MS from the One Year War in 1/100 scale, joins this Gouf special. Known for her bold move with the Regelgu, she showcased an unfinished version in the Gundam Archives book, later completing it. Her journey with the MG MS-07B Gouf Ver.2.0 has been a rollercoaster of twists and turns, detailed further in this article.

MS-07B-3 Gouf Custom - Modeled by Koji Naoi


In this Gouf special, Koji Naoi presents a variation of the Gouf Custom. Although it appears to be a Gouf Custom, Naoi intended it to be a "Gouf" itself, crafted as the "MS-07B Gouf" from a world line that didn't appear in "Sentinel 0079". Using design drawings from "Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team" as a reference, he aimed to align it with the Katoki version of the Zaku II, completely remodeling the exterior.
