To be honest I'm not a huge fan of the Zaku, but I feel I need one in my collection. Since I'm gradually building everything from Zeta Gundam, the Hi-Zack was an obvious choice, and it has an interesting blend of design styles. Its clearly a Zaku with its head, spiked shoulder, pipe fittings etc, but there are elements of federation as well as AEUG design in there which make it pretty unique.
I've got the waterslide decal set of course.
One thing I plan to replace is the hoses at the elbows. Unlike the rest of the kit which uses plastic rings over a flexible PE core, they are entirely of PE. Even if it holds paint, as soon as it flexes it will at very least crack if not peel so I will scratch build replacements out of styreen tube and some sort of wire.
Paint job and markings will be true to the movie as a Titans Mobile Suit.
