Welcome to my entry in the Grunt Build #3: Shattered Centry (sounds a bit like a Zoids series :)).

Never leave your Zaku running with the keys in ignition whilst taking a leak. Damn Feddies have made off with it. Can't trust anyone any more  :-\ Just as well it's only a lowly Zaku MS-05, I mean what could they do with that  ???

You'll have to wait until 8 June to find out more  :P :P

No just a Zaku. My box of frogs escaped, I finished the half eaten pastie, the robber wanted his dog back and my box full of ar5eholes need topping up so I haven't got any Titus  reference material.

Contrary to unfounded rumours I am not doing a fugly (read Titus) but a true example of the lowest grunt that ever grunted a grunt, the venerable Zaku I and to compound it's lowly status the Feddies painted it in standard RGM-79 colours when they captured it.

My idea is to replace a few bits here and there with parts from various GM's and load it up with Feddie weapons and of course beat the hell out of it.

Feddie bitz and more bloody seams  :-\

Missile launcher & 100mm MG from the [G] series with head, hands & shield from a GM V2. I was going to use the Guncannon head from the HY2M-MG set shown in the first pic but it turns out the mass produced Guncannon has a different head, DOH!

The plamo tsukurou Zaku I in the Dunbine paint was awesome.

More respect is due this kit. I don't think it truly is the grunt that grunted a grunt's grunt (eew). Might not be far off but the Zaku I has cred AFAIC.

The glorious colours of the mighty GM mixed and ready to go.


Looser Zeon pieces waiting for their glorious transformation.


Praise the Gundam gods. The Zaku is starting to see the light.

All the body parts have been recoloured from the skulking in the shadows green & blue of the cowardly Zeon Zaku to the here I am come and blow the sh!t out of me duck egg blue & red of the Federations mighty GM  ;D

That duck egg blue colour is a bugger to apply (the red isn't much better). It doesn't want to cover and won't stay on the edges or panel lines, just as well this is going to be a dirty little Zaku  ;) All brush painted except for the armour skirts and backpack in pic above. It's too cold and damp to spray  :'(

Forgot to ask. Is the Duck Egg blue a custom mix or a bought paint? If a mix, what did you use? Have been trying to find it and can only see it in humbrol enamels but no clues on what to use to make it up!
