Zaku 2 2.,0 Ramba Ral's Custom


This is a Zaku boy, Zaku!

The Zaku 2 Rambal Ral custom is a kit I built for Gundam Beginner's first weathering contest.

I don't have much experience weathering kits, so I was excited to try out some new weathering and battle damage techniques on this kit. Early on I decided to go with a Rambal Ral scheme, I picked Ral because I like the color blue, and Ral is my favorite 0079 Zeon character. Early on I also decided to weather the kit, but not to beat the Zaku up to much. Rather than cut an arm or leg off I went with a design that showed the Zaku had seen combat and had been exposed to the elements.
