Helping a friend take pics of his complete built and sprayed kit for sale. He did so as to dedicate to GM visors unit over mono-eye. Rick Dom II MS-09R-2 was developed as a land type MS however through some of the specification change, MS-06 space type hovering suit, Rick Dom became a successor over Zaku II. An excellent MS in the late One Year War, integrated development plan in the Principality of Zeon was carried out, however the production of these significantly refurbished MS was drastically low. Rick Dom II was developed as an MS with the features and shape suitable for operation in a more space and technology improvement of thruster, balancer enhancements and other respective parts. 

As a request of the army that had problems in the procurement of the lot, operability of improvement and integration, the second phase of production type of cockpit has been adopted. Rick Dom Ⅱ eventually became a full-fledged mass production, because it was the end of the war in the previous stage, the number of Rick Dom II deployed were few and mainly assigned to experienced pilots. Equipped with diffusion beam gun on the chest, Rick Dom II, required high output nonetheless equally effective with short-range beam cannon at the time of close combat. In this kit the mono-eye on the head had been replaced with a round convex sticker for a more three-dimensional effect. 

As for some fact of Rick Dom Ⅱ, the 3D scanning mono-eye has a further field of expansion, which is spherical configuration the Mono Eye cover. The disposable rocket launcher one of the biggest buzz of Rick Dom. Resembling the portable anti-tank rocket launcher used by German foot soldiers during the WWII.

General MS firearm type of 90mm machine gun principality army MMP - also present equipment possible late type 800 grenade launcher.

i didn’t know that the Rick Dom II was actually a successor of the Zaku II (well, actually i’m very novice in Gundam matters and to be honest, the first anime series are long and lately my spare time is rather short =/)... for me, the head design is a sure winner in this mobile suit, modern and emblematic, but the rest of the body looks too heavy and sluggish (the thrusters inside the lower limbs, are technically a risk for the structure, since these produce undesirable extra heat in a critical point for the movement of the mecha, even in space applications... and i already sounded like an engineer LOLOLOL !!!)... congrats for the simple but nice paint job !!!... =D

Rick Dom not actually the successor. Pardon me sir... More like one of Zeon's Research & Development for MS that exceed Zaku's performance and eventually be mass produced. Unfortunately, Zaku remains the easiest and more economic wise which continue to Zaku III or Hi Zaku. You really sound like an engineer. Admirable for someone into design to know so much on engineering.
