MG MS-06F Zaku II ver 2.0 English Manual and Color Guide

MG MS-06F Zaku II F Construction Manual and Color Guide

The 1/100 Master Grade MS-06F Zaku II ver 2.0. The iconic Zaku is the cannon fodder unit of the antagonist, Principality of Zeon, in the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. Its great that Bandai decided to make a version 2 of this model kit that had better features and details than the original version 1.0.

Compared to Amuro Ray's RX-78-2 Mobile Suit Gundam I prefer the design of the Zaku. I started watching the first few episodes of Mobile Suit Gundam this year then suddenly dropped off. I should really try watching it for the sake building up my "street cred" on Gundam history *snicker*

According to the literature included in the manual, the fictional actual size of the Zaku is 17.5 m, weighs 58.1 tons bare and 73.3 tons loaded. Its power plant generates about 950kw of energy. Fans will probably be very familiar with its weapons load, which is the Zaku Machine Gun, Zaku Bazooka and of course the Heat Hawk for up-close and personal work.

The Master Grade MS-06F Zaku II ver 2.0 is selling for 2565 yen at Amiami, 3500 yen at Hobby Link Japan, 2450 yen at HWJapan.
