With some rare downtime, I was able to complete the Zaku Amazing from the anime Gundam Build Fighters. This also turned out to be my final build of the year. And a very productive year it has been, but that is for another post. Now on to the build.
The Kit –
This is the 1/144th scale High-Grade of the MS-06R-AB Zaku Amazing from the anime Gundam Build Fighters. The Zaku Amazing is based on the MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type and comes in the colors of Char Aznable, from the original Mobile Suit Gundam anime. This build was done for as a test run for future Zaku kits that are in the build pile. I also do like the over kill in the number weapons this suit carries.
The Build –
Overall I enjoyed the build. There are only a couple of items I would complain about. One would be the holster boxes for the pistols, anytime you try to pose the arms they pop off. I will be glueing on, once I take care of some nub marks. My other issue is the long rifle. Because of the fact that the long rifle is used as part of the Amazing Booster set, it has two connection ports on top of it. I wish Ban Dai could have at least included a couple of parts to ‘hide’ these ports. What I might do is go back and make a couple of covers. On the positive side, you get some extra weapons.

Final Thoughts –
The primary purpose of this build was to practice building a Zaku mobile suit and still build something fun. This kit hit the mark on both points. Just the sheer number of weapons alone, makes this my type of mobile suit.
With the Zaku Amazing more or less complete, I will be starting the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II from the anime “Gundam 0080 – War in a Pocket”
