    Yeah, this is getting out of a comfort zone and I want to see how it goes. I don't mean that in a bad way too. I genuinely want to see your progress on it.

    My indian name is now CHIEF RUNNING WIRE! Im already done running all the wire and guess what? The mono eye still rotates! Just like it did out of box



    I had to drill a lot of holes. And the one through the gearbox had to be PERFECT that one was a bit stressful.

    Ok so i found a brass part in my spare parts bin that fits the LED perfectly.


    It just adds a bit more detail. And it blocks the light from going every where.

    Somebody clearly can't wait for a Zaku 3.0.
    It's looking great man! Hopefully everything will still work after you have it fully assembled.

    Awesome. That little metal piece will help a lot.

    I, too, am very excited for a release of an MG 3.0 Zaku II. Zaku's are just so cool.

    I now see why this is considered so hard. FU˘& SOLDERING! My phone wont take a clear picture of this but i got my LED and wrapped the tinny wires around the cut down posts. Then i as carefully as i could tried to solder them on. But its so small the solder just jumped between the posts. And stuck to everything. And i tried and tried to get it to just stick to the posts and nothing else but it didnt want to. So i said F it. And let it cool. Then whipped out the dremmel and cut the lump of solder in two. And it worked. I tested it out and it worked just fine.... For about a second then nothing. So i tried cleaning the leads to the batterie and nothing then i tried just moving things around an nothing. So i hand no choice but to try to re solder it. And guess what happened. Yup. Same damn thing. Big ass lump of solder. And i didn't even add any. So i figured well i pulled it off once. Lets see if my luck will hold. Nope. The negative post just fell right off. So i got to thinking. I cant solder for shit. So i wont solder at all. Im just going to take my second LED (they came in a two pack) and cut everything out then just wrap the wire around the posts and glue it in place. Wish me luck guys.
    Oh and here is a blury pic for you.
