Kind of got pulled back into the Gundam hobby after not building any for almost 10 years, think the last one I built was a Wings kit. Anyway I had this Zaku II from the 1997 8th MS team Gundam vs Zaku two pack laying around and wanted to work on it for three reasons.
1. its and older kit and thus simpler then the new kits
2. because it older its good practice for finishing and painting as if i mess up not going to feel to bad
3.I've always liked the mass produced suits better then the actual Gundam units.
Here's just a test fit of the major parts after sanding
I'm not an expert and i know that Zaku's are know for their large feet but these seem slightly oversized. For comparison here's a little Zaku statue i got from somewhere
lastly for now here is another test fit post clear priming I did today. The clear matt primer actually makes the kit look really nice without any paint
