Looking back at this list, I’ve completed 10/15 of the mobile suits for this project. Excluding the Shamblo, that leaves four remaining units: the Juaggu, Kapool, Zogok and Desert Gelgoog. For the sake of completion, I have decided to build these four Remnants of the Zeon Remnants Project.

At the beginning of the project, I stated my lack of interest in the non-conventional designs of the Juaggu, Kapool & Zogok. That opinion hasn’t changed much, but I thought I might as well make them to look less goofy (especially the Juaggu & Zogok).

Juaggu

Instead of the standard HGUC Juaggu, I bought the MSV version (P-Bandai) which has a normal right arm. The plastic colors are different as well. The one thing that I can’t stand about the Juaggu is the leg design. I’ll be replacing them with some spare parts I have lying around.

Kapool

I bought this old HG Kapool kit from somewhere a long time ago. Now seems like a good chance to finally build this kit. I have nothing against the Kapool design, so I’d expect the majority of the mods would involve improving the articulation.

Zogok

This has to be the one of the wackiest looking kits of the four. I’ve contemplated adding a head to make it look more like a normal mobile suit, but it made it look even worse. So for now I’ll just replace the limbs with those from HG Age Titus. Will it look less wacky? I don’t really know…

Desert Gelgoog

The Desert Gelgoog was left out from the original list because frankly the design doesn’t look as interesting as the others. Plus there’s no actual Desert Gelgoog kit so I would have to modify a normal HGUC Gelgoog into the Desert version. I probably won’t replicate the original design 100% but I hopefully it would still look ‘Desert’ enough.

 

So these four builds will the last of my Zeon Remnants Project. At this point, all four are in various stages of completion. I cut the parts from the runners and trying out various parts to kitbash. Will I be able to finish them all by this year? I doubt it, but I will がんばります.
