View Full Version : gunshy's first: Zaku I Sniper Type (Yonem Kirks)

I completed my Zaku I Sniper Type (Yonem Kirks), my first Gundam kit.

No painting other than panel-lining and clearcoat.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement and help on my WIP thread.

Thanks Bossguy for suggesting this as my first. I think part of his appeal to me is his military coloring.



Riding in the Kotobukiya trailer. He has to scrunch his shoulders forward to fit.


I tried to duplicate my avatar with this one

Nice build.. this kit is from unicorn right?

Your seamline removal came out much better than expected and it's a clean build. Although, I see that you may have encountered some difficulty getting the scope lens in the rifle. Doesn't detract much from the looks, though.

Hopefully you'll continue building more of these kits.

Thanks Dlinker, didn't notice that. This picture is not as clear, but the lenses been corrected.

Great looking kit man. Everything turned out looking great, and the work you did on the seam removal is amazing.

And all is well with the kit now, haha. That flat coat did an excellent job hiding the sealed seams and making a uniform finish.
