Obscure references like these are why you need to watch ZZ before Unicorn.
I’m glad I watched ZZ, because when I did, Elpeo Ple/Ple Two/Marida Cruz became my favorite female character(s) in the Universal Century.
MS-09F Dom Tropen: Principality of Zeon Mass Produced Valiant-Type Mobile Suit. High Grade Universal Century, 1/144 scale. The Dom Tropen, a Dom designed to operate primarily in tropical and desert environments, was featured in Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory. It also makes an appearance in Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn as part of the Zeon Remnants on Earth.
Unicorn is what made me want to pick up this kit, especially this sand brown variant. The way the Doms sped across the battlefield, gliding around enemy fire always looked badass. Unfortunately, the bulky appearance of the suit makes more dynamic posing difficult.
As usual, this kit is panel-lined, no top-coat. For paint, black for the vents on the feet, red for the Scattering Beam Gun (not that you can see it or anything), and spray-painted the Heat Saber white. Only sticker used was the green foil mono-eye, but I think that was the only sticker included anyways.
If you couldn’t tell, I’m trying to make 2013 a Zeon heavy year.
MS-06F-2 Zaku II F2: Principality of Zeon Mass Produced Mobile Suit. High Grade Universal Century, 1/144 scale. This Zaku was featured in Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory.
I liked how this Zaku looked compared to the original HGUC Zakus, so I picked him up. It’s also my first Zaku, so there’s that. I actually completed this on January 6th, but decided to wait on posting it. I wanted to finish 3 kits before I started posting, but 2 will have to do, since the 3rd requires me to paint.
This kit was panel-lined, no top-coat. Only paint added was dark gray Gundam marker and black paint to leg thrusters/vents/things. Only sticker used was the pink mono-eye.
Enjoy the pics! Another one’s coming sooner than you think!
Stop-Motion Test (by Neil Castillo)
Just a little something I threw together at 1am while recovering from my fever. It got real late, so I did without cool muzzle flashes. Maybe on the next one. Not bad for a first attempt at stop motion, i think.
Here it is! A kinda-sorta Zeon Mobile Suit. The RMS-108 Marasai: Neo Zeon Attack Use Mobile Suit. This thing has a really convoluted history. It was originally going to be the AEUG’s new suit, then the Titans got a hold of it, then the E.F.S.F. abandoned it after the Gryps conflict, then Neo Zeon and the Zeon remnants picked it up…
Anyways, I always thought it looked cool, but I just never really liked the Titans color scheme. The Zeon Remnant colors seemed more fitting. I really think that the 4th ova of Unicorn was my favorite because of all the old (grunt) suits that popped up and fought. Usual build, just panel-lining without top coat. Only stickers used were the mono-eye and rear camera. Sorry for the lack of action-base action. All I have is an Action-Base 1 which does not have a 6mm attachment. I should really buy an Action-Base 2.
I finally finished watching Gundam ZZ, so I can finally move on to Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack and Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory!
Tadaa!!! It’s finally done! The RGZ-95C ReZEL Type-C: E.F.S.F. Mass-Produced Transformable Mobile Suit [General Revil Deployment]. I started this while I was waiting for the paint to cure on that other kit (I have no idea when I’ll be able to spray again). It’s been done, just had to paint black inside the verniers. I painted the yellow “V” on the crotch, but used stickers for the surrounding orange, because let’s face it: I don’t have orange paint and I sure as hell didn’t feel like buying some. Aside from that, I just painted the dark grey section behind the boner. As usual, the kit is panel lined, but not top-coated.
I never liked the ReZEL before, that is until I saw the General Revil versions in the 5th OVA of Gundam UC. That color scheme just appealed to me. I didn’t want the Denfenser-B unit (yet), so I got the P-Bandai Hobby Exclusive off of gginfinite.
AMS-129 Geara Zulu (Guards Type) from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. High Grade Universal Century, 1/144 scale. Finished assembling this last week, but all of that white trim took forever. Got a few more kits in my queue. What should I build next: A Federation suit or a Neo Zeon suit?

I kind of want to get two more.
