i like the Zakus as well, but there are some design specifics i really dont like about them as far as Mecha go. yeah, i know that they are basicly the 'Generic mass-produced mecha' of the Zeon forces (kinda like T-72s for the old USSR).
they look great for what they are, but if i were to get ahold of one, i would have to make some improvements, mostly in armmaments and armor itself. but this is just me. i do like how this piece turned out, and i do like the weapon you did give to it however
