While I have been fairly vocal on Armorama over the past two years this is my first foray here. Years ago (like 1986) I picked up a copy of Hobby Japan magazine. There was this great feature on the "desert" including a scratchbuild of a Gundam double zeta "tanker". This was an armored Zaku transport. I have always wanted to build one of these, but pictures seems to be scarce, save for my old magazine. Does anyone remember this and would anyone have any good drawings or pics to help? Cheers.

No dice, can only find two images. It looks like it would be simple enough to make your own drawings for if you have an actual Zaku model to use for a scale baseline.

If you can make a digital copy of one or more of the photos, you can drag the file into the google search bar and it will pull up similar results to match the image.

John that's it. I have that pic and the ones from the magazine but since I cannot read kanji I am at a loss. Anyone else have scale drawing perhaps?
