I really like the look of this Zaku. I like what you did with the colors on the backpack, although my favorite pics are of just the Zaku by itself with no equipment. It makes me realize that it's actually a pretty cool design that gets kind of lost in the backpack. Nice job!  :-)

P.S. What mods did you do, since I have Lunamaria's Zaku in my stash?

Hi
that is indeed a very nice work. Some time you dont need tons of mods to make a great work.
Also I second Funaka, Zaku Phantom is a nice design without all the backpacks

Funaka: thanks for looking bro! well I only did minor mods such as changing the shoulder armor design using pla plates, Making a cut on the chest to look like it has internals, added some panel lines on the legs, torso and skirts. combined the mono eye of the MG zaku II and some pre paint mods of the shoulders. ^_^

philipks: thanks a lot bro! yeah I agree with the both of you, this zaku looks good even without the pack pack! very great design from bandai. :-)
