Another month another Origin HG. As much as I love these things I think I’m getting a little burnt out basically building HG Zakus. Not that I don’t love the box art on these things. But why a HG MS-05S Char’s Zaku I before a Zaku II? Hmmm..
This kits runners are marked as either Zaku I (Origin) or Zaku (Origin).
Then there is this anomaly.
It’s marked as Zaku I (Origin).
And yet it has the tagged onto the end.
One of the Zaku (Origin) runners also has these parts added.
If it wasn’t for these new parts I’d be experiencing deja vu.
I don’t think I need to do a WIP for this kit as it’s the same as the other Zaku I kits which are almost the same as the Zaku II kits. So let me show you all three of those new parts. You’ll need the backpack.
Then you’ll assemble the three new parts together.
Then it just plugs up into the bottom of the backpack.
With the other end attaching to the rifle.
I should mention the rifle parts are new.
That end fits on the new rifle handle part before the hand goes on.
There we go.
Let’s see what he looks like.
You can see that the plastic ammo band from the backpack to the rifle is quite stiff and affects which direction the rifle points. It would have been better if it was rubber. It also has some nice sticker work without being way too much.
