Nice work on this. Weathering looks nice for such a small kit.

Good work on an interesting subject. Bravo for breathing life into an antique kit.

I like old school kits, and this yellow pacman has always been a favorite of mine.  One question about the weathering though:  I think the Zackrello is primarily a space unit, don't you think the weathering is a little bit on the heavy side?

Thanks guys for the nice comments, we have a strong interest in vintage kits at Bakuc. I will try to do more in future...

Good question...

While researching this guy (which you can find on the first post of the WIP) I found he was an early design Mobile Armor. He has superior fire power, speed and armor to most mobile suits in the one year war but had handling and turning problems (get shot and hit alot). By the look of him this guy would ram himself into mobile suits and space ships a lot too. I built his mouth to cop damage and parts of the body that will collect ash and soot from exploding crafts. After learning this I would never think to build this guy clean. But on the other hand all of my kits are weathered heavily, its sort of my style...
