HG The Origin #03 MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type (Gaia/Mash Custom)

(2 customer reviews)


The MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type is a limited-production Mobile Suit developed by Zeonic Company for the Principality of Zeon’s growing military force. The MS-06R-1A Zaku II High-Mobility Type was one of the earliest variants developed from the Zaku II series, outfitted for superior performance in space combat. The MS-06R-1A Zaku II High-Mobility Type features additional thrusters built into its leg armor fueled by internal propellant tanks inside the Mobile Suit’s backpack. These Mobile Suits proved unwieldy in the hands of typical pilots, leading Zeon to assign only their most capable pilots to operate the MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type. The Black Tri-Stars, Gaia, Ortega, and Mash, sortied in a trio of MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Types during the Battle of Loum, using their overwhelming maneuverability to cripple the Federation’s fleet.

Included alongside the HG Zaku II High Mobility Type for accessories:

  • 120mm Zaku Machine Gun
  • ASR-78 MS Anti-Ship Rifle
  • Type A2 MS Bazooka
  • Spare Magazine for Type A2 MS Bazooka x4

The HG Zaku II High-Mobility Type borrows several components from the previously released HG Origin 01 Char’s Zaku II model, the first model released in the HG The Origin line! 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 all of the parts and markings necessary to recreate either Gaia or Mash’s configuration of the Mobile Suit.

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 #03 MS-06R-1A Zaku II High Mobility Type (Gaia/Mash Custom) 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.

  1. Cynical Medic (verified owner)

    Another great variation of the Origins Zaku II, very detailed with good articulation. The main issue is out of the box the “black” colored sections of the Black Tri-Stars Origins kits are more of a very dark blue instead of being black with a purple hue or at least black with a blue hue. They are the Black Tri-Stars, not the Blue Tri-Stars. I don’t have the HGUC MS-06R-1A Zaku II Black Tri-Star kit so can’t compare the color tones out of the box.

    I agree it’s not quite black, more purple which is fine with me since I think it looks very cool. The other colors might give it that appearance anyway. Otherwise a very good zaku with some nice options here and there.
