HGUC1/144 Zeta Gundam - Red Snake Customized Build by MinhTommy

The full name of this kit is called Red Snake Zeta Gundam.

The modeler posted this on a Vietnamese Gunpla forum so I assume he is a Vietnamese as well.

As the name suggested it is painted with these sexy dark metallic red as the main colour, black as secondary and silver for minor details. There are a few metal thrusters at the back of the leg and the custom made hand gun.

To be honest, my first impression is “Gundam Throne Drei / Zwei colour scheme?” when I first saw this Zeta Gundam. It is a nice touch having the white water slide decal. Too bad the “Z” sign on the shoulder doesn’t stand out. Overall it could be better if the machine detail parts (e.g. the “pipes” at the lower arms) is painted with silver or gold.

The thing I like the most is actually the custom made hand gun build from scratch. It makes the work unique. I especially love the light up stage with the flame like text. It is a great way to present a modeler work, which often neglected by others although their works are great.
