It’s one of my good friend’s birthday today and he really likes Mobile Suit Gundam, especially Zakus so I drew some for him.
Sorry for the long absence but sadly I can’t say when I’ll be back to regularly posting again.

MSK-008 Dijeh [Amuro Ray Custom]
A.E.U.G./Karaba Prototype Mobile Suit
Custom Showcase
High Grade Universal Century 1/144
Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta
The Dijeh is a lowkey favorite non-gundam type mobile suit. It’s design is most likely based on the Gelgoog which is my favorite Zeon mobile suit from the One Year War, and it’s the funky, chunky mobile suit that Amuro Ray piloted for the duration of the ground war in the Gryps Conflict. Some of the best battle moments for me in Gundam Zeta were of Amuro Ray bringing the hurt to Titan forces in this mean green machine.
As a stock build, the HGUC Dijeh has solid articulation and joints. The arms especially have an interesting design that allows them to be pulled out and swiveled for additional range of movement, which gives this somewhat bulky kit the dexterity hold its weapons with two hands. This is also handy for achieving extreme poses especially with all the bulk on the right shoulder. The legs have about average range of articulation for a modern high grade so they can’t pull off the extreme poses that maybe more high end High Grades and Real Grades can but it’s still sufficient. I feel that the dual thrusters on the back unit could have benefitted from a joint system similar to the HGUC Sinanju and Sinanju Stein to provide a better range of movement, but it’s still solid enough.
For the customization aspect of this kit for #Project Rivalry, I noted in my WIP posts that I wanted to create a “retro-anime accurate” appearence for the kit. Since the default colors of the kit are for Amuro Ray’s unit, I kept them the same but added more red to match it closer to the RX-78-2 Gundam color layout with red in the shield and feet areas. Also added minimal markings and decals. This helps the kit fit in a little better with the Real Grades while also standing. I’m proud of the results of my work, and this marks the third kit that I’ve painted. However, there are a few things I would do differently if I decided to make another custom Dijeh that was more stylized and closer to Real Grade appearence.
I am satisfied with the markings layout, but I think that I would want to add more for a stylized and less anime accurate custom Dijeh for Amuro Ray. Probably more caution markings, and a squadon unit marking as well. Maybe some trim markings. There are also a few other color scheme ideas I would be interested in: A simplified color scheme that replaces the yellow for more cohesion or a realistic color scheme based on real life air force color schemes. Finally, I’d also want to add additional geometry and panels with some pla plates. Mainly the feet guard and backpack.
I really enjoyed this build. It was also a very nice change in pace to build a high grade again. I consider High Grades to be the heart of Gunpla kits, since they are the most accessible and have the greatest potential for customization all while remaining economical. With the completion of the Dijeh Amuro Ray Custom, Project Rivalry is now basically half complete. I’m already setting up to start on Char, the Red Comet.

Gunpla Builders You Should Be Following
I figured I would make a shout out to the gunpla builders on Tumblr that you should be following. These builders are active here and post regularly with what they do.
NOTE: THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST. This were just the first 8 builders that came to mind. I regularly check who is building and posting and try to share works that I like
@g-29astarothtrinity is nearing completion on an Amuro Ray custom Dijeh build from what I can tell. Excited to see the final product. Also actively plays the mobile game Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare.
@orloph very good looking builds and high quality work. Also just won a prize for their Sazabi build.
@christianmswanson very cool builds with his Gundam Wing MG kits and his videos are fun to watch. Lots of Wing Gundam nostalgia.
@the-purple-comet excellent Zeon builds and kit bashes. Very interesting to see what is to come next from their work.
@garrettb115 currently working on the MG Hi-Nu gundam. Lots of good looking builds.
@zgmfx008 wide variety of builds and excellent poses with very good photo quality.
@master-bigg if you like zeon kits, you will like follow master-bigg. He seems to have them all.
@wintersyear does a lot of cool diorama type work with a very military feel to them.
Again, I highly recommended that you follow these builders if you do not do so already.
