Here's another variation of Bandai's best-selling Master Grade Zaku kit. This version is based on the version originally seen in the "M.S.V." (Mobile Suit Variation) series. Besides the coloring, there are quite a few detail differences in the lower leg parts, weapons and markings of this Zaku. Weapons include the Giant Bazooka Prototype, standard Bazooka, "Heat Hawk" axe, and the sub-machine gun. This kit also comes with a figure of the pilot "Mush" (great name).
Like all the kits in the MG series, the level of detail is superb, and virtually everything moves. The pipes running from the thighs to the calves, as well as around the sides of the head, are flexible springs covered with plastic tubes. The head has a panel that opens, and a small tab on the back of the head lets you position the Zaku's scanner eye. Three types of hands are included: open palm, fists, and posable (moving fingers).
All of Bandai's MG (as well as HG) kits are completely snap-together, and parts are molded in color, so no painting is necessary. Of course, the use of cement and paint will improve the appearance of a finished model.
