The MS-06S Zaku II is an upgraded variation of the original MS-06 Zaku II intended for use by the Principality of Zeon’s Commanders. This all-red MS-06S Zaku II belongs to Major Char Aznable, famed ace pilot and future leader of the Neo Zeon Army. The MS-06S Zaku II is almost identical to its mass production counterpart, aside from the commander-type antennae protruding from its head. Internally, the MS-06S Zaku II features an updated powerplant for increased performance, providing its skilled pilot with unrivaled maneuverability. Char Aznable made many notable appearances in the MS-06S Zaku II during the One Year War, establishing himself as The Red Comet of the Principality of Zeon during the Battle of Loum. During this engagement, Char destroyed numerous Federation battleships with the MS-06S Zaku II, setting the groundwork for decades, if not centuries, of wars fought with Mobile Suits.

  • Belt-Fed Machine Gun
  • 120mm Zaku Machine Gun
  • ASR-78 MS Anti-Ship Rifle
  • Type A2 MS Bazooka
  • Spare Magazine for Type A2 MS Bazooka x2

The HG Zaku II Red Comet is essentially a re-issue of the original HG Origin 01 Char’s Zaku II model, which Bandai released way back in 2015! This model features double-jointed limbs and swiveling thighs, providing a wide range of motion to create dynamic poses. The piping segments on the Mobile Suit’s head and torso are self-contained and should not inhibit the model’s movable range. This model includes the markings to recreate the HG Zaku II Red Comet’s appearance after the Battle of Loum.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

This model includes the standard 120mm Zaku Machine Gun and the Belt-fed variant seen in Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin. Bandai provided a removable ammo container attached to the Mobile Suit’s backpack that feeds the ammunition belt directly to the rifle. This model also includes the ASR-78 Anti-Ship Rifle and the Type A2 MS Bazooka for some additional firepower. The HG Zaku II Red Comet can equip the Heat Hawk attached to its side skirt armor for close-quarters engagements.

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HG The Origin #24 MS-06S Zaku II Red Comet Version with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
