Another build that I have recently completed is the MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type, flown by Black Tri-Stars pilot Lieutenant Junior Grade Mash. The Black Tri-Stars are a trio of Zeon Aces. In the opening scene of MSG – The Origin the Black Tri-Stars are part of the Zeon force taking on the Earth Federation Fleet. They make there first appearance about 1:45 into the video below:
This is the first of three times that I will be building this kit and it is also the first time I have built a Zaku mobile suit. The kit went together with some minor issues. I do love the fact that it comes with both activated and deactivated versions of the Heat Hawk axe. I have to admit that my next build was almost this same kit, but carrying the Zaku Bazooka. For now, that will have to wait.
