= Zaku II 1/144  (HG Bandai)



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.

--------------------
Front view with little tilt-up for human-view like. Magnetic chain-mine is modified from panzer wheels. :-)



with N-scale model



gorilla-like view. :-)



oblique views





Thruster is painted with gunze-silver color, other parts was painted and finished with flat lacquer.





Power-pipeline was modified by ornament bead.





Last picture ,every criticism are very precise for me. I will try my improvement with every comment.




+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
my work process

= modification and detailing
Power pipeline was applied from bead ,eye from peg and cover with trasparent plastic sheet (cut from mom-birthday cake box).



Arms and legs was detailed up with round nut ,hexagon nut and some little plaplate.


Shoulder shield was textured with tamiya putty.



= priming with spray can plastic primer

= preshading

Preshading along panel line ,deeper area with 0.2 mm. needle airbrush ,thinned with extra amount of thinner than usual and low pressure air flow.



= base color

Light green area was painted with Olive drab ,Dark green with Russain green (with little black) and joint part with german grey.



= rain mark

Fading in vertical line for mimic rain mark was done by 95% thinned Tamiy acrylic color brush for serveral random thick straight line.



= wash with red brown and chip with redbrown and grey Enamel



Thank-you for your attentive! Any comments ,pro or con ,are very worthy to me.

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.
