ITS DONE! the pharoah! the terran! the elephant! IS DONE!..hehehe along with all the names it was called :lol:

PEEK-A-BOOM:ZAKU DIORAMA
(inspiration came when i was playing Peek-A-Boo with my 1 yr. 5 mos. old daughter..and yes minus the weapons.. :lol:)

After Months of on and off Work on the Zaku i also decided to make it a simple diorama to give justice to all the work done on the mech when displayed on the shelf :-)

Here It is:







Some detail thumbnails:

enjoy!

You call that a simple base?! I'd hate to see your complex dioramas. Looks absolutely freaking astounding, man. The entire piece is so visually busy your eyes don't know where to start and each time I look at it my eyeballs take a different path up and down the whole piece. Great work. Very classy.
Trust the robot.

Awesome!
As Mathis said, there's some much stuff going on you don't know where to start, and I love that.
Visually striking to say the least!
The mods are really cool. The head thing looks a little weird to me but fits in well with the rest.
+1 karma!

For some reason, I love most of all the plasma-buster-thinger on its butt. :D  I agree with mathis, this is hardly "simple", it's beautiful and well-thought-out.

Great great job I love it, the mods fit the Zaku perfectly and the dio is fantastic ; full of big guns and details.

I sorta get the impression that he's falling down, but WOAH man, thats one awesome dio!
There was a terrible ghastly silence.
There was a terrible ghastly noise.
There was a terrible ghastly silence.
