[MG 1/100] MSZ-006A1 Zeta plus
This version of the 1/100 MG Zeta Gundam is the test version as it appeared at Anaheim Electronics during the initial phases of the project. Eight full-size runners with hundreds of multi-colored parts make this kit a serious assembly project, but it goes together very smoothly. Besides the transformation capability, the kit includes all kinds of other features. The model is moveable, including the antenna on its forehead which can fold up. Three sets of hands are included -- fists, open palm, and posable. Weapons included are the beam saber, dual Vulcan cannon, beam rifle and shield.
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. However, the use of cement and paints will improve the appearance of a finished model. Many of the surface markings are printed right onto the plastic parts but this kit includes replacement transfers for those who wish to paint their work.
