Took longer than I would've liked but I finally wrapped the project up.

QUITE POSSIBLY THE SEXIEST ZAKU I HAVE EVER SEEN.

Good lord that's amazing--the frosted clear bits look awesome, the clear clear bits are also amazing, and I really do love the Smoke coloured bits.

Is that a light up Heat Hawk, or just really well painted?

Great work Falldog!!

To all those wondering about the light up Heat Hawk, it came with set B of the clear armour set, the char's version.

Nice one Zenny!

Falldog I just adore your work. That LED Heat Hawk is so cool. Why was I expecting this in my mind to be clear green ???

You do a disservice to a great number of better Zakus out there lol

Yeah, the heat hawk came with the clear option kit. I'm surprised that I got it to light up though, considering the less than optimal way these old kits were constructed.

I painted the heat element red (it originally came orange) so it could match the other one that doesn't light up. I like that they're of different sizes and have different points on the handle where the staff connects to the hand.

Awesome job man! Just wish the clear bits were more see-through so we could see more of the detail on the frame :P

Love the way that the eye looks in that last picture. Love the way thr light spreads as it gets further away from the eye, with the glare. Also love the white clear, was expecting green clear tbh but this is much better.

Amazing build! and as Xenomorph said, I wish the armor wasn't as opaque so we could see all the detail underneath the armor.

The dulled clear parts are a great touch.Really draws the eye in
to look for the detail beneath.
Great way to reprise the old PG kit,a ver 2.0 of the oldies would
be good form :)
