I first bought this Char Zaku in order to kitbash him with the Nu Gundam and make some sort of pieced together junkyard Gundam. But I started realizing that not only are all the joints for both of these models complete opposites of each other, but that with the Nu Gundam’s huge size the proportions would be completely off. Now with no purpose I really struggled to figure out what to do with it since I am really not a fan of Zeon suits. Luckily around that time there was a gunpla contest by the Gundam Eclipse forums so I thought why not try to combine the zaku with another char suit the hyaku shiki.
I tried a few new techniques with this one from using metal after market parts, and acrylic gems, to molding epoxy to reshape parts.
