Is that the Magella tank bottom from an MSiA??  From my experiences with trying to work with MSiA, they don't seem to want to stick to anything else... the plastic is really soft.  I dunno... you might want to find another base.  Besides, the Magella attack tank is MSiA so its going to be less than 1/144th scale anyways... just an observation.

Well there's that old-skool kit back from the 80's.  I think that's 1/144.  Yeah, working with MSiA is generally bad, but I do think he's using the injection kit.

Yes, there was a kit of the Zaku Tank back in the late 80's but it is very hard to find these days (I've been searching for it but I can't even get a sniff of one!)

The kit he is using is an old no grade 1:144 magella attack kit from the orignal MSG line.

There was a reissue of this kit just a few years back and i picked one up from HLJ at the time

Also recently announced is an EX Magella attack currently slated for march release. Mabye you want to hold of until then to use that instead?

Hello,
I'm very interesting by your project because I'm doing too a custom guntank. Maybe your modifications on your zaku-tank will be useful for my work.  I went to see your gallery of work, one sees your progress well there.  Cheer :wink:

just an update folks...

managed to jerry-rig a bracket for the shoulder mounted recoiless cannon from the magella-attack kit and scrounge some unwanted parts from my kid's zoids collection for a rocket pod... :)
