MG MS-06K Zaku Cannon English Manual & Color Guide

Bandai Master Grade MG MS-06K Zaku Cannon English Color Guide & Manual

MS-06K Zakucannon from Mobile Suit Variations that was made into a Master Grade kit by Bandai in 2008. The Zaku Cannon is a heavy weapons type. Aside from the usual fare of a Zaku Machine Gun and Zaku Bazooka, this mobile suit sports a shoulder cannon and a pair of "big guns" on its waist area.

There is also an option to assemble this as "rabbit type" with two antenna's on its head instead of one that make it look like a rabbit. Then along with that is a different "green" color scheme.

The MS-06K ZakuCannon is selling for 3298 yen at Amiami, 3600 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 3600 yen at Hobby Search
