Hello everybody ,this is my first time on this site. I started gunpla modeling for a year and now I need some comment for my finished model from gunpla expertise. My native language is not English ,please forgive for my gramatic mistake. :-)

I bought this Zaku II model from local department store near my home last 5 years. It was bundle with RX79G ,two model in on box. I am nearly therw away this model after It was painted with serveral layer for my practice. Lucky, I decide in the last minute to revive this model.

Color scheme is inspired from last month hobby japan cover ,painted and weathered in military-look which is my favourite way.

Very 08th team, which is good seeing as how this is where the kit originated. Good work on the weathering/shading, its appropriate and not overdone.
