Grunt MS Group Build:EX Challenge #3: Commandeered Z
« on: June 09, 2012, 04:08:03 PM »

Here's my idea for this GB, gonna do a regular old zaku in titans get up, if possible ill use some of a RX-178 MKII parts modified to look like the grunt mass production version the "Refined Barzam" (thanks shaid), if there's not enough info or skill to pull it off ill just do the zaku in titans get up, mmm dark blue :)

Back Story:
A small unit of 3 titans soldiers sent deep into enemy territory come under surprise fire from a lone zaku, the surprise attack takes out one of the titans MS and a fire fight breaks out whilst the soldier runs from his half destroyed MS, after a small scrap, the odds overwhelm the zaku and a well placed grenade launcher shot hits the zaku in chest close to the arm pit, the blast destroys the the zaku's arm and knocks out the pilot but otherwise leaves the zaku in working order, not wanting to be left a MS down in their already tiny mass produced MS team the titans soldiers decide to take the zaku to attempt to use it as their own, they pry out the pilot attach a note to him saying "thanks for the zaku" and send him running into the dark, Commandeer the zaku and drag their destroyed MS back to their hidden base for some on field refitting.

And some obligatory timestamped pics

I realize that I love how these SDs have a MG-ish look to the cover of their instruction manual. :)

Some of them even have their boxart look like SD versions of the equivalent MG. Maybe not these ones, but the 00 ones do.

so i did my research today and have found im safe as you can see from the two pics attached the arms, which is the only bit i was after are the same and further more the ako resin conversion kit comes with no parts to modify the arms as seen here http://www.rocketpunch.biz/2009/08/08/1100-akohobby-rms-154-refined-barzam-conversion/

so im safe there the only downside is that i wanted the titans gun to come along to the zaku too but because i have to use the "refined barzam" as the donor suit the gun they gave to that ms is a beam rifle with grenade launcher, and the mk!! only came with a regular old beam rifle, so ill have to scratch build the grenade launcher part in tiny sd form (lol) or scrap the gun and just give it the zaku gun, time will tell

on that note though if anyone has a SD beam rifle with grenade launcher that looks like the one in the pic PM ME

I also have the Gundam Fix Figuration of the Refined Barzam. If you ask nicely I can possibly take photos of bits you want to see more of.

You could also use the rifle from a 1/144 HGUC kit or whatever if you can find one.

The beam rifle/grenade launcher is a resin kit. I used one in my Reaper dio. It's loosely based on a Seed/Destiny Orb weapon I think, as is some of the other resin BFGs that are around. I've only ever seen it in 1/100 but some of the Seed weapons might work (do they do Seed SD kits?).

smoke some opium and disaasemble/reassemble your M-16 + grenade launcher in the dark?

Hmmm... googled Paint It Black and was suitably unimpressed with what I watched.
