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!

I really want to make a pilgrimage here…
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!
Here’s my newest kit, one of my souvenirs from Otakon 2012. The High Grade Universal Century MSN-07B-3 Gouf Custom: Principality of Zeon Ground Battle Type Mobile Suit. I’m a big fan of 08th MS Team and Norris Packard was the most badass pilot in that series. As per usual, this kit is only panel lined.

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?
Latest work! The RX-79(G) E.F.S.F. First Production Mobile Suit from Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team. Today was my only day off of work this week, so I committed my entire day to building this kit. Building Gundams just relaxes me for some reason, and it gets me so focused that time just flies.
