Odds are this thread may be a tad slow at times due to a variety of factors, but probably also because of the fact it's not only a resin conversion kit, but a recast one since you can't get the original one anymore. Conversion kit has changed from original due to issues Right off the bat, I have to say this: No, I won't be painting it in Kirk's colours. They're nice, but I'm not one to always do the "canon colours" or "factory paintjob" thing. I'm actually kind of thinking of some sort of patchy and "muddied" scatter camouflage based off of some sort of combination of Spotted Hyenas, Dalmatians, and even Great Danes. ^Obligatory "glory shot" of what I suspect will wind up being used. - Master Grade MS-06S Zaku II Ver 2.0 Char Aznable's (will mainly be used for the frame) - Universal Century MS-05L Zaku I Sniper resin conversion kit - SIMP/EVO Studio Zaku II (Ver 2.0) Grunts decal sheet - CJHobbies metal detail up parts kit (will mainly be used for leg thrusters as well as the mono-eye) Yeah, it'll be a bit of a situation of not really using everything in that detail up kit, but such is life. I don't want to try and figure out what size thrusters to get to work with the kit. And yes, I know the Zaku I doesn't have the leg thrusters, but oh well. Resin kit has them, and I kind of like that it's almost like it's a slightly modified Zaku I for better mobility. ^So uh, where's construction so far? Well, truthfully? This is where things left off, but will be seeing a decent amount of progress in the very near future. Yup, you build the initial kit only to then take three quarters of it apart, whee!
This video showed up on my YouTube feed the other day. I thought it was interesting to see the technicians fine tuning the molds and the rows of injection machines cranking out sprunes. It's been over 10 years since I built a kit made by Bandai. The parts come in multiple colors on the same sprune and are quite detailed. I can only image the kits have gotten better. Anyways on to the video. THE GUNPLA FACTORY
