【Gundam Model Review】 HGUC Zeta Plus “Make Sentinel Edition”
It is a kit of HGUC series which appeared in Gundam UC (Unicorn).
In Gundam UC it was only a few turns, but since 1989 Gundam sentinells first appeared. It is aircraft well before Unicorn.
– It is surprisingly old aircraft.
By the way, I think that the kit is still cool enough,
What kind of modification will we make this time?
Certainly, it is a cool kit before you need to remodel it.
However, since this kit is a unicorn version to the last, most of the design has changed since the announcement (sentinel version).
The kit is a solid body with a large fuselage
It is different from the slender style of the sentinel version.
Furthermore, the rotation shaft which was originally in the thigh also is omitted in the kit and it does not move.
This time I will reproduce the design of the sentinel and want to explore the origin of Zeta plus.
This time I will make Zeta plus A2 type.
The same type as the Hi – mega cannon of ZZ (double zeta) Gundam is attached to the forehead for A2 type.
ー A2 type, is there any other kind of thing to say?
Of course there are many other types.
Incidentally the kit is A1 type zetas plus.
It is an early kind that can be used in the atmosphere and it is an interesting place to make use of how to make use of the aircraft’s setting for remodeling.
Also, in the premium Bandai of the mail order site, Zeta Plus C1 type which is the aircraft for space was released.
Let’s see each part.
It is a face of Zeta Gundam family without habit. As the sentinel version is unsatisfactory, I want to use “HGUC S Gundam”.
Because the form of the head is a bit different, I am also particular about remodeling.
Shoulder armor moves independently. Armor on the side also moves, but it is somewhat interesting that square holes are empty.
It is divided into parts finely.
Impression that the shape protrudes slightly back and forth.
Although it is good as a unicorn version, in order to make it a sentinel version it is necessary to change each part greatly.
For the new kit, the structure is simple, the joint parts are 1 part.
The forearm can be exchanged for “HGUC S Gundam”.
Since the beam canon which is lying side is on the thigh, it does not become an obstacle to move. The sentinel version has a frame in the connection part of Beam canon.
It is rare in HGUC, the back armor also moves back and forth.
The shape of the wing is also newly changed in the unicorn version.
Because the sentinel version contains detailed details, it takes a little time to reproduce.
As I said before, the thigh has no axis of rotation.
However, it is easy to remodel it because parts are divided in easy-to-remodel place.
Since the connecting part is a ball joint, as a sentinel version it is where you want to put a frame.
The range of motion of the knee is quite wide for deformation.
As a sentinel version, I am concerned that the positions of the knee armor and ankle armor are above.
Armed is very simple.
Beam rifle (same as HGUC Riesel)
This time, as much as possible, I will reproduce as shown in the illustration.
