When you take pieces from different kits to construct something else it is referred to as a kit bash. I wanted to have some fun experimenting with constructing the Zaku's gun.
This is what the gun is supposed to look like.
So let's start cutting off the pieces I don't want.
Let's turn the butt of the gun upside down, permanently cement the scope on the side, and replace the barrel with that of the bazooka. Then let's add some leftover sprue pieces on the side.
Now let's spray it all black, then add some grey hosing, then decal, then mask off the parts we want to stay glossy when we spray the flat black.
And there you have it! A custom built gun.
I took this picture to show the difference between the glossy and flat top coat. That flat is sexy!
