My current work in progress... 1/60 PG Char's Zaku. I've been busy with school so I'm not as far as I'd like, but It'll get there.

Indeed. :lol:
I think my favorite part of this kit so far is the fact that the mono-eye can move and lights up.
I guess I'm a sucker for gimmicks like that. haha

When you finish the kit, you should take some more pictures, including one of the mono eye glowing in a dark room.

Ma'am, actually. ;P But I won't fault you for that. I don't make a point of mentioning it.

Wow, that is really amazing, and I'm sorry about the sir thing, it's just something I do :) .
That kit, I'm such a sucker for LED kits. Silverframe and I are working on Haros and I'm probably gonna put LEDs in the eyes.

Ah! I am so sorry dear! You are the 3rd official recognized girl on this forum! Zeta might be a girl. No wait Zeta is a girl. He can't argue this, the forum games says he is now a girl.

Not a problem, haha. Shall we vote on Zeta? We can make a poll and everything.

Haha, forum determines one person's gender.

Yup, screw what your body says Zeta, we're voting on your haha.

There needs to be more options than just boy or girl.

I say Haro as an option.

Going off an earlier post...

I'm cool with being labeled as a lesbian trapped in a male body. Of course the forum game indicates that the rest of you are now (straight) women. Oh well plenty of fish in the sea.

Technically, I am now a hermaphrodite with mechanical prosthetics because I was once quadriplegic. I am not actually a herm, but I'm claiming myself as one because I am the OP of that forum game and being a girl is not fun enough.

Zeta, I am purposely going to get in trouble later so you can be my lawyer.
We will wear Zeon Uniforms instead of suits.

I'm not a lawyer yet...


(the mechanical parts are grafted onto her later in the story after she gets seriously messed up; think like Andrew Waltfeldt and his arm, but much worse; also the mechanical parts have much higher precision and tie into the nervous system [think Motoko Kusanagi from GitS combined with Emma Sheen]).

Nice, and I know you aren't a lawyer yet. You're still in school if I'm not mistaken, but I did say "get in trouble later"

Was just foreshadowing the fact that you'll have to defend a maniac.

G.O.D., I want that Zaku so bad, such a sucker to Zaku's. I am planning on getting Super Zaku, but that's not important now. Good work on the model ma'am, looks awesome. And Zeta, I would, too, attend my brother's court case, but I would be Char... Or Super Zaku... :twisted:

If you want to try a PG, it's definitely easier than the 00 Raiser or Wing. Based on my experience, anyway.

I'm not worried about the complexity (I have well over 20 Master Grades under my belt). I'm just looking for the right kit, since they are (relatively) expensive. Assuming that there aren't any new PGs out (besides Strike Freedom), when I get around to ordering my first PG, it'll be between the Zeta, the 00, and this.

Gotchya. I loved building my 00 Raiser, but the Zaku is quite a bit cheaper.
If they make a new PG after the Strike Freedom, I would love love love to have a Unicorn.

I've always been against perfect grades personally. I just can't ever see myself building one. But this...this zaku might just be the one to push me towards a PG kit.... maybe....

Why would you be "against" perfect grades? The high price?

GNzaku0023
November 10, 2010, 8:17 PM
Well that, and the fact that I never have any time to build them. I'm also not very good with wiring work. When I said 'against', I never meant I don't think anyone should buy them, but rather I personally have stayed away.

The wiring isn't necessary (as evident with my failed Wing Zero) and with the Zaku it was pretty simple. As for the time, well, it's a long process. :P I think my 00 Raiser took me almost a month... but I didn't build every day.

Most of the older PGs are a little cheaper but they're still over 100. I typically hold of on some master grades... 3 or 4 of those and you've got yourself a PG.

yeah even still, I don't have the money for a perfect grade. I get one gunpla a month, maybe two if I'm lucky.

Neo Grade's was a master grade kit. but due to the resin it makes it hard to pose.

I expect a MG kshatriya would be in The O's price range, given how expensive the HGUC was.
