MG MS-06S Zaku 2.0 Black Tri Stars

Completed November 2012

This was a straightforward build so no WIP. I built this in a rush for Those Gundam Guys’ Southern California Gundam Model Contest. This year’s theme was Master Grade Zaku. It wasn’t really finished at the competition but it was finished enough to put it together and take it. I had to add the metal bits after the contest, which improved the looks of the model A LOT. Color scheme is obviously Black Tri-Stars. Keita pretty much did the same thing, although he built the S and R parts. I got the big Bazooka from Terry who wasn’t going to use the one that came with his MS-06J. I’m not super-thrilled about this model. It’s kind of out of box (as close as I get I guess), not particularly original and it’s got some maddening little imperfections and decal silvering from the rush job I did on it and the Alclad clear coats I used (going back to Mr. Hobby from now on, Alclad metallics are great but their Krystal Kote is not as tough as the Mr. Color stuff). I actually spent a little time trying to fix the decals after these pictures were taken (and I saw it in the pictures…).
