HG EWAC Zack English Manual and Color Guide

HGUC RMS-119 EWAC Zack Construction Manual and Color Guide

Reconnaissance variant of the Earth Federations Hi-Zack set in the ZZ Gundam universe. This time made into a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai. Also popularly referred to as the "Eye-Zack", no doubt a play on the "Hi-Zack" name of its more popular brethren.

Haven't seen ZZ Gundam yet so can't really comment on this. I have to say though, from an engineering standpoint, its kinda weird to use a mobile suit as a reconnaissance platform. Mobile suits are known to be bulky and cumbersome. If you were doing reconnaissance you'd probably want something light and fast. Then again, maybe the designers, aside from wanting to make it look cool, were thinking of unit survivability. But that's just me over analyzing again *snicker*

True to its reconnaissance roots, the EWAC Zack is armed only with a Zaku Machinegun while its body is littered with electronic equipment. Such as the conspicuous Radome on its back, grand sensor antenna on its crotch, active laser sensor on its forehead and data pods at its back. It also comes equipped with external propellant tanks, so I'm guessing this is for long range reconnaissance.

The HGUC RMS-119 EWAC Zack is selling for 1170 yen at Amiami, 800 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 1280 yen at Hobby Search.

Construction Manual and Color Guide for the EWAC Zack was translated to English from the Japanese manual posted at Dalong's Gunpla review site.
