Real Grade 1/144 - MS-06F Zaku II "Elite Guard" - WIP - Repainted

Repainted and new decals applied and basically finished except for a little weathering.

Completely taken apart and all the mechanical skeleton or inner frame was repainted 50/50 Vallejo Black/Metallic Black from the original Grey. And the lighter greens panels have been repainted the same as the as the rest of the body so that all the torso is one shade of dark green which is Vallejo Field Green and the limbs and head are all the same Vallejo Pale Green. Much more pleased with the way it looks now compared to what it was, all patchwork quilt like which to me just looked wrong on a mass produced weapon of war.

Of the parts that have be repainted i reapplied decals but have really reduced the number i had compared to last time, i did follow the instructions but only applied about half so as not to make it look too "busy".

Soon after 9 months i will have finished my first RG Zaku, i plan on building many!
