Additions to the armor brigate: MS-06F Zaku Minelayer.

For a past couple of months had been really tied up with whole lots of trouble, pleasant and not very. First, found a new job, yay! Now, I have to drive almost hour and a half north across NYC and it’s suburbs. Have to get used to it, no other way around. New schedule, new surroundings, and lots new things to learn. Because of that had to halt almost all my hobby activities.

Was planning on posting a report on my gunpla progress in February, apparently that did not happen. But, you know what they say: “Better late then never”.

So, here it goes.
In one of my previous articles I was bragging about custom painting MS-06F Zaku Minelayer. Really like the grey/black color scheme, I think it very well suits this gundam.


That would be my second painted gunpla, tried to do my best to mix colors right. I think I’m right on the money.

Dry transfer decals, on the other hand, caused so much trouble, almost ruining most of the paint job. For instance, from being #01 armor unit became #89 ^_^

What I really like about this particular Gundam – is the backpack.

Separated it with 3 main colors: black, gray and gun metal.

And gun metal on the mine doors and jet thrusters.

Have to mention highly detailed hoses as well. Ones around the neck and waist are solid, and don’t move. On the contrary, ones on the legs and another on the back of the helmet, connected to the backpack, consist of plastic rings mounted on a metal spring.

Posability is quite good, only thing restricting motion – is the side waist skirts.
