Mega Size Zaku Complete – Go See it at Robot4Less

March 29th, 2012 No comments

Last weekend I put the finishing touches on the 1/48 Mega Size Zaku. I built it for Roy, who owns Robot4Less, which happens to be about literally around the corner from my house. It’s now on display there next to a couple of other Mega Size models built by speed-builder Martin. Click on the Picture Link below to see the gallery.

The Unicorn That Was a Boomerang

Only in my world would that sentence make sense.

This was going to be a post, but this was a pretty massive project, so I decided to make it into my usual In-Progress and Completed pages.

In mid-January I called up Steve at Bluefin and had him send over the Unicorn (again) for refurbishment. We last left the Unicorn in a case of Star Wars-like “used future” weathering in an attempt to make lemonade once the clearcoat on the Unicorn turned VERY yellow from sun exposure, and it suffered a fair amount of dings and staining in being shipped cross country. We started with this:

We last left the Unicorn looking like this...

Stripped parts - Decals and most yellowing are gone.

And ended up about 6 weeks and 123.5 man-hours later with this:

Love the red!
