Believe it or not the texture and color is based on World War 2 German armor. It is a bit unusual to apply this to a Sc-fi setting but does look interesting.

- Zimmerit. Most Zeon kit builders love it.

Your no fun ;). There was no universal set pattern for Zimmerit in real life. Also it looks cool.

Zimmerit is paste. So essentially they slapped gobs of it like mortar onto the tank. The only reason it looks that neat is because it was made by the Germans. If the Yanks did it, it'd probably look like a big glob of blu-tack sitting on the turret. (Don't ask how Filipinos would put it on, we'd probably just eat the stuff...)

it was a genuine question, im no expert in stuff like this so i was wondering about the scale, the quebley is an 18m tall mech so each of the lines in your patten is roughly 10-20cm wide which i guess as far as "slapping globs of mortor on metal" (thanks for that wavehawk) is feasible id hate to be the guy putting it on that neat though haha

Ah! Didn't read it that way my apologies. If I did historically correct Zimmerit it would not be viable from 1:144. Also the from of past on a gundam is redundant. Because elements off WW2 helmets and grenades do appear on zeon mobile suits I always saw my texture armor as extra thick cast plating. Also the most appealing element of Zimmerit in ww2 was the unusual appearance which was unknown to its reason at the time and confronting in battle. Visually as a model it looks really cool and brings up interesting discussion. So my Zimmerit is more of a visual thing then a tactical thing.
