Hope of more 🙂

Same! So far I've only built the torso of the base model, but I should probably get some pics of the basics for the project, and maybe see if some of the elements I'm using are actually listed in the database.

I'm looking forward to this 🙂

Cool project 👍 I didn't realize there were so many variations of the Zaku. I'm working on the Zaku II, the green one.

There's a decent variety of Zaku kits out there, although most of them are in High Grade (HG) or 1/144 scale. There are options for Master Grade 1/100 kits beyond the typical two frames (the standard MS-06 Zaku II with F, J, or S variants, plus a few Premium Bandai variants... And then the High Mobility type MS-06R - Johnny Ridden, Shin Matsunaga, and Tri-Star are the main kits you can pick up).

If you want to go with older designs like I will be for this one, there's a few different ways to go about it, but I'm going with a resin conversion kit. From what I can tell, the inner frame as well as some pieces are used with the resin parts, while most of the plastic outer bits wind up going into your parts box.

One of the biggest places the MS-05L Zaku I Sniper has been featured is in the Gundam Unicorn, during episode 4 of the OVA, where Yonem Kirks shows off that despite it being a twenty year old design at the time it's still a rather potent mobile suit. I'm still undecided as to what colours I'll go with, but thankfully it will be a while before I get to that stage since there's building up the initial kit, a lot of test fitting of resin, rescribing of panel lines where needed, and all the other little nuances one has to do with resin.

Once I fully wake up I'll look into figuring out how to add things to the Scalemates database so I can have the conversion kit, decals, and metal detail up parts added into the project itself, instead of just text.

Whoo, kit's built on the day the last of my safety gear came in. Now to start work on my first bit of resin...

So here's the basic parts list. Odds are this Zaku II will be after I finish my Zaku 1 Sniper. - MS-06S Zaku II Ver 2....

Man this is cool.. 👍 Just recently got into Gunpla myself. Your red Zaku II is cool. I'm working on the green one, they are very different🤔

Hey, we have the same desktop! 👍

WhiteWulfe
Many thanks! I might wind up re-taking the photos at some point though, since they're a touch too dark but when I try to push them in Luminar they get rather noisy. There is the benefit of some of my mistakes being hidden by the pictures being dark though... ^_^

I have the MS-06C-6/R6 Zaku II Type C-6/R6 on the way, which is green and black!

By desktop I presume you mean the Art Alternatives cutting mats? They're handy cutting mats, especially for colour correcting my photos! I'm hoping to upgrade to something other than cardboard behind a model on my assembly desk for a photo booth in a few months.

I just meant we have the same black on black work space, as you can see also in my posts...🙂

Ah! Sometimes I overthink things. Black is a handy background!
