    Captured Hi Zack painted in AEUG colors

    The colors I used are based on what AEUG used on the RGM-179 GM ll they used. I figure if you're going to use a captured enemy mobile suit, you might want paint it a different color so you don't become a victim of friendly fire. Painted the Hi Zack with Rustoleum Moss Green and Heirloom White spray paint. Went a little overboard with the decals. I wanted to make it look like the fighter planes I used to work on when I was in Air Force. I used 1/72 scale F-4 Phantom, F-15 Eagle and some train data decals. I added the Bulldog decals as a kind of nose art just like the airplanes in WWll. For weathering I used Tamiya's Weathering sets. Its like make up for models. I mainly used the Oil Stain color from set D. It gives the Hi Zack that dirty grimy look that the jets had. I made the checkerboard on the head red based the red checkerboard that the 36th Fighter Sq used on the tails of their F-16CGs. I used to work on them back in the 90s when I was assigned to the 51st Fighter Wing Osan Air Base. I wanted to give the Hi Zack a fighter plane look to it.

    Meh, I'd rather have Marasais than Hi-Zacks.

    Definitely more detailed then the AEUG captured Hi-Zack from Gundam vs Zeta!
    If I recall correctly the Titans version was Parade colors and the Federation version was Char red.

    I like the checkerboard pattern on the head: nice touch. I do find it funny that despite changing factions it still has plenty of that green so we remember it's Zaku upgrade.

    Thank you.

    The red checkerboard is based on what the 36th Fighter Sq used on the tails of their F-16CGs. I used to work on them back in the 90s when I was assigned to the 51st Fighter Wing Osan Air Base. The colors I used on the Hi Zack are what AEUG used on their RGM-179 GMs.

    Thanks. I'm glad you like it.
