RG MS-06S Char's Zaku II (Built & Painted)

Just like RX-78-2, its nemesis is evergreen and not surprisingly induced to the hall of 'Real Grade' as Char’s iconic 'Red Comet' Zaku II customed was introduced shortly after the Zeon's grunt green Zaku II. Promised to be the most articulated 1/144 scale Gunpla till date, Char’s Zaku II had been incorporated with advanced MS joints to take full advantage of the frame structure. This allows the Zaku II to do dynamic poses such as tackle, the famous Char’s Zaku kick, and crouching similar to the MG Zaku Ver 2.0. 

Having said so, I'm still very cautious handling RG fearing breaking the joints and always looking out for any falling parts. I do like the way Kenny Ang adding those tiny metal thrusters to this built and top-coated end product. You see a scaled down of MG Zaku Ver 2.0 in this kit with inner frame, movable grabbing fists, multiple decals, colour tone variants and amazing level of details. Come with the necessary accessories like machine gun and bazooka and heat axe. Still, not my cup of tea but I admire the effort and passion of those who attempt on this Gunpla.

RG kits are not for everyone, I must agree, but the level of detail and articulation achieved in this scale (1/144), surely result attractive for those who want a realistic model and have issues with the space for display... I’m delighted with the subtle variations of color among different areas in the armor, it adds visual richness and even this old and classic mecha design looks more modern, just because of the color scheme (the MG kit doesn’t look this good as far as I know)... That’s a nice and neat paint job in fact !!!... =D

I do agree with the amazing details and articulations achieved by RG on model of such small scale. The colour tones variants on various parts and fine decals added complexity in overall. I won't deny that RG is 1/144 model kit at its best in today's context.
