ZAKU Warrior

One of my first kits with a custom paintjob. I’m not a big fan of Gundam Seed Destiny and since they tried to recycle Universal Century (UC) designs, I thought I might as well give one a proper UC unit color scheme. What other perfect color scheme for a Zaku than the Black Tristar colors.

I bought a set of Mr. Hobby Gundam colors for the Black Tristar color scheme (purple, dark grey, whitish-grey). I did some minor mods on the kit which included cutting the front skirt armor apart, shaving the beam axe so that it”s smooth like a normal axe and replacing the sticker monoeye with leftover sprue from a beam saber.

After gluing the parts and sanding (a lot of sanding), I sprayed the parts with primer. Painting was done fully by hand, with a paint brush. Masking parts were at a minimum, which was great. After panel-lining with grey acrylic wash, I applied some Zeon decals. Finally, I applied a generous amount of Mr Super Clear flat spray.
