This Zaku tank is a great fun kit to build, its not without problems but nothing to bad and i really enjoyed it. I pushed my building skills with the weathering, painting technicians and the diorama. I still have a wood frame to make for it but that will come when I can muster the enthusiasm for it, so here it is and once again I really struggled taking any sort of good pictures of this, something i need to practice.

I think thats about it, i had a little story to tell in the dio but Zaku did a better job of it than me in the WIP.

Cheers man.

I know it my own work and its not the done thing but hell i put some effort into this and i still really like how it looks. It now also has a wood frame so could do with some new picture.

I just noticed something, those canister covers on back, do they flip all the way up to allow the top ones to be fired off? If not, the next one you build you could mod it to where the hinge is on the bottom instead.

Thats a good call, they don't open all the way because the exhaust get in the way, a simple mod if you just move the engine top forward. I think it would also be good to have infantry comming out the back ramp and my mod the front and have them comming from there was well.



I do think there is so much you could do with one of these kits doing another is not out of the question but they are definitely not an OOB kit, may be in desert camo next as well.

Looking at it I don't think that there would actually be room for troops to fit in the back of that and the engines and gears needed to move it. O was tinking that the ramp should be and access hatch to the main power plant, engine and gears for the tracks.

I gotta ask where did you get, or how did you make, the spent shell casings!!!! Always wondered how to find them for dioramas! This is absolutely breathtaking by the way!

I have found them on E-bay. Hgoparts, and Abby.Lc are two good sellers they have a lot of metal upgrade parts. I have bought a lot of stuff from both of them. Or look at seller "one2sixxx" they have all kinds of really nice looking shell casings made for the 1/6 scale figures, but they work great for Gundams.

For some odd reason I can't seem to find any of them. Is there like a seller search I am missing?

I have neglecting my threads for the last few week but thanks for the kind comments.

The shells are from China's version of ebay, but you need to buy through a proxi like Bhiner. PM me if are interested and i can send you some info.

Google Gundamcentral it will open new worlds into gundam kits.
