MG MS-06F Zaku II review

I was lucky to be able to review this kit, MG MS-06F Zaku II Ver 2.0, courtesy of John Melvin. This kit is an updated version of the kit that first introduced in October 1995.

Completed with decals.. 😀 , no topcoat applied yet to protect it, so have to be very careful when handling this kit.

Heat hawk, another Zaku II’s weapons are included. When not in use, it can be mounted on the side or rear skirt armor. I wished it would included an effect part for the heat hawk 😦

PErhaps should get a yellow light to add more effect?

Another armament of Zaku II is the bazooka. Parts are included to make either standard bazooka, or the giant bazooka pictured above.

Bazooka’s scope has a to cover up when not in use.

Standard bazooka are smaller in size and looks more like mass-produced.

The kit easily poses like the Unit 2 in the box art.


Overall, this is also a good kit, with great articulation. Each fingers have two joints. Legs are amazing and sturdy. What i like is the kit quality (better than average for an MG kit) and the moveable mono-eye!

However, what i dont like is:

  • Bazooka seems quite hard to mount, especially with the big parts (giant bazooka) interfering the shoulders
  • Individually moveable fingers (two joints for each); means more time required to adjust fingers, and they not strong enough to hold the weapons (so it is a must to mount it onto the palm). This particularly not good if you want it to hold other kit’s weapons such as beam rifles etc.

Still, i would recommend people to buy this kit because it’s pro’s are much more than its cons 😀

  1. I guess when you say “replace the barrel” you mean “reload”?
