If you want to know, the various "02." clear stickers on the shield, one of the front skirt armors and collar are actually leftover pieces from my Perfect Grade Gundam Mk. II (Titans' Ver.), ^^ and if you think they are a bit too big for this kit, you're not alone - I think they are too big too. ^^; Looking at how much space the stickers take up on the shield and front skirt armor, I wonder how the numbering would look like for units numbered 100 or above. ^^;

Still, despite the sudden burst of interest in applying markings to the model as mentioned in the previous posting, I made sure that all of them are suitable for Zaku Warrior. ^^ Apart from the few that feature Z.A.F.T. logos and numbering, the rest are generic warning messages that can be used on any kit. Even on that note, I made sure all the ones I picked have about the same font face and are close in font size, which is surprisingly not an easy task. Most of the markings for earlier Master Grade releases have rather large pieces where the messages on them can be read without a magnifier; most of the newer ones have much more delicate pieces with tiny lines of text, so the difference is there. Also, different series of kits have different designs as well, for example the rigid digital look of E.F.S.F. units versus some of the more artistic design of Zeon units. They aren't compatible with each other obviously. ^^;

Selection of logo is an obvious point to look out for. Everything is over if I applied a Zeon decal on the shield, XD even though I do have quite a few of that from unused sheets in a few Master Grade Ver. 2.0 Zeon kits. ^^;

Some action poses from this kit to be featured in the next posting. ^^

If I correctly understand, you don't spray any kind of Top Coat on your Gunpla models, isn't it?
Thanks and congrats for your great job!
