MS-06F Zaku Minelayer Construction Manual & Color Guide

The MS-06F Zaku Minelayer was released in 2008 by Bandai as a beautiful 1/100 Master Grade model kit. The Zaku minelayer is a variant of the popular mass produced Zaku mobile suit of the Zeon forces from the original Mobile Suit Gundam Anime series.

Like with its name, the purpose of the Zaku minelayer is to lay mines. To do this it has a custom backpack where the mines are located, but aside from that, it still carries the common Zaku weapons such as the heat hawk, machine gun and bazooka.
