And damn there are a lot of Zaku kits.

Anyway, here is my MG Hi-Zack. It's not completely done, I still have to change the nasty rubber wire things on the arms and legs. I'm leaning towards using aluminun tube and whatever wire I have around. I used a couple of different Mechaskunk parts, beads and braided wire.

Great color scheme, very good weathering. It will look a ton better with the mods you said you'd make. Thanks for sharing.

I don't mean buildwise, I mean the Hi-zack is the coolest Zaku. I still have a ways to go before my stuff looks that good.

Someday I'll buy some good lighting. I keep saying that.

I'll have new hoses on the arms and legs in a few days. I found some small tube from some old Evangelion figures I have. I cut about 100 2mm pieces and started to put them on wire. I made the hoses for the arms longer so they can actually move.
