Real Grade 1/144 - MS-05 Zaku I - WiP 4 - Head / Monitor
The head or monitor would be the correct mobile suit term of my Real Grade MS-05 Zaku I conversion. Modelled both the normal head and one with the commander antenna which i can swap any time which is a nice feature in the RG Zaku, giving 2 top parts of the head with the MS-06F kit.
Made by filling the connections where the cables are on the MS-06, added the central mono-eye guard taken off the HGUC head (talk about a blind spot) and added the fin at the back with plasticard, also sharpened the edges of the commander antenna which i will be doing on all my future zaku builds. Sounds kinda easy but getting the central column eye guard in the correct place and sanding it flush with the existing model took quite some time and much repeating with putty, especially both ends sitting on top of the nose.
