A couple of the model shops I used to frequent in Tokyo had aftermarket replacements for just about every aspect of Gundam figures. Made for literally endless customizing possibilities.

This looks like the gun used/modified.

Its hard to tell as there has been a lot of custom work added to this Zaku. But the base kit look like it is the MG MS-06F-2 Zaku II F2 EFSF Version from what i can tell by the chest plate and forearm design and due to the fact that it has movable thumbs. As for the weapons I agree with Ryan that it is a aftermarket/home made gun. However as the 1/100 scale kits are about 6-7in high; 1:12 scale weapons such as the one from the Little Armory line by Tomytec can probably be re-purposed for them.
Hope this helps




Thank you both for answering - this is going to be a bit more difficult than I expected (Not an off-the shelf kit...) Best,

I don't know much either but to me it looks like Zaku II body and aftermarket/home made gun.

Apologies, but I do not know much about Gundam kits. I saw this on facebook, and it looks amazing... must have this model.

Can anyone help identifying it?
