Title: HG Zaku High Mobility origin kit
Post by: rockpopandchips on October 05, 2017, 09:32:56 PM
So my prize is here and I'm not far of finishing my current build and I'm thinking of a small do this time. Using a tank kit and the Zaku smashing in the tank.

A bit like this.

That's a great idea,all you need now is some smoke and extra bits flying off.

A small change to HG Zaku but one that make the shield a bit more interesting. I cut down the active Heat Hawk to make it inactive and made a small mount on the shield, also extended the bottom of by 2mm.

ha! awesome. The tiny fence is adorable. Action scenes are hard to do right, looks like your direction is a good one.
