I: Main Body
Another very low-detailed HGUC, the Zeong has but minimal panel lines. Looking at it’s size and lack of legs, it’s always a bit tricky to tell its height. With the base, it stands (ha) with the HGUC Char’s Zaku II’s blade antenna reaching the Zeong’s shoulder.
The arms are only accommodated by a simple polycap embedded in the torso, but has some swivel allowance, but not as good as most kits around the time.
The two mega particle cannons on the band are faithfully reproduced, with the barrels being parts inserted into the blast shield openings, which retain the lining details. Those require the purple to be painted, however.
I’ll also note the detail along the bottom of the skirt, the “dotted-line” pattern that’s to provide a layered look to the armor. For some reason, I didn’t paint these. Something I might have to go back and fix in the future. Along with the gold for the pipe accents…
HA! Ha, ha! Oh, that's a good one! Ho! Hoo, lemme... lemme just settle down for a sec...
Oh, man, that... That was classic.
II: Display Base
The given display base is a very simple design, yet compliments the Zeong very well. I think being the final Zeonic MS designed to compete with the Federation’s Gundam (A popular theory to the “G” in “ZeonG”), an upside-down V-fin look is suiting for such a role.
The base’s construction is very simple, yet tight. Having only 4 parts, it’s surprisingly sturdy and holds the weight of the Zeong well, even when angled.
I painted the base of mine gunmetal, both to differentiate it from the intermediate blue of the Zeong and to further affirm it’s Anti-Gundam symbolism.
The base attaches to the Zeong via the peg into a polycaped slot in the Zeong’s fuselage.
Arms launched. Preparing for All-Range Attack.
I can see the enemy!
