hi guys! I just recently got an old MSV 1/144 Zaku II Johnny Ridden Custom and an HGUC 1/144 Zaku II Black Tristar use. I combined the two kits to produce an HGUC kit of Johnny Ridden Zaku II because I have been waiting for this kit to be released but Bandai seems to be delaying it for some reason :), but anyway. I only hand painted the kit with some warhammer paints, and used the decals of the MSV 1/144 Zaku II JR custom.
I always hand paint my zakus to produce some weathering effect on them. I also used some silver paints and panel wash on this kit to make it more realistic.
I enjoyed painting the kit, it really turned out really good in my opinion and I am also planning to make an Uma Lightning custom Zaku II as well!
