RG Zakus WIP #3

A good heap of progress this time around.

The first thing I've done is mod the fore arms to feature some large bore cannons, inspired by those on the Gelgoog Marine.
I wanted them to line up up with the old school Zaku look so I've aimed for something clip loaded and really bulky.

Next up were some "heat axes"  they are big and hefty inspired by the Zaku Amazing of Build Fighters fame (they're called "Heat Nata" I guess). Additionally I've mounted them onto the Zaku II S backpack which I felt was a better look for this.

Full Armour Gundam Ver Logic WIP #6

Little more progress, I have both messed up the paint and tidied it up a little, just need a flat coat now.

Not sure that it actually looks at all good, but I quite like the effect: burnt, singed, but with a few repairs scattered about.

Full Armour Gundam Ver Logic WIP #5

I've done some of the weathering, I still have a few more ideas I'd like to implement before I get this setup with a stand and call it done.

One idea, I'd like to implement is, given the scale of this monstrosity to be 1:2500 it would need to be repainted piecemeal. So there would be little square patches of fresh paint where it has been burnt or rusted off.

RG Zakus WIP #2

Feels like more progress!
I've sealed up the holes in the upper legs where the pipes were.

The backpack has been similarly sealed.

I then worked out a new fin for the head, and a collar heavily inspired by AoZ's Stutzer.

And finally I've gotten some work done on the chest section as well.

Since the pressure is one for ZakuAurelius' Contest, I'll be focusing my efforts on getting this one done first.

Full Armour Gundam Ver Logic WIP #4

Progress! Decided to go weathered with this, so I've taken the liberty of abusing the surface with some 120 grit sandpaper and then primed and painted as matte as I can possibly get it.

There were two minor spots where the paint peeled a bit, I've patched them very quickly. Beyond that I'd like to weather it up a bit more, a Full Armour Gundam Ver Logic wouldn't be complete without it.
