The latest addition to the Ma.K. ZbV 3000 lineup.
The sci-fi series "Maschinen Krieger ZbV 3000" was created by artist Kow Yokoyama in the early 1980s. It appeared in the popular magazine "Hobby Japan," until copyright issues forced the company to cease publication by the end of the decade. The series' realistic "industrial" design was inspired by armor and aircraft from both World Wars, as well as films like "Blade Runner" and "The Road Warrior." "Maschinen Krieger" continues to have a devoted cult following, after its celebrated return to "Hobby Japan" magazine in 2009. This limited edition kit features new parts for armor plates, an optical-seeker, a sand filter, a radome and laser guns. Kit also includes one marking option: Ma. K. Mercenary Troops' Arms Pkf.85 FALKE Late-Upgrade Version, Code: G.
