1/72 Custom 2199 Cosmo Zero

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

As an aside from my Star Destroyer, I pulled this one out of the stash for something quick to build. This kit only took 3 days to build and paint and I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

It's the Bandai 1/72 2199 Cosmo Zero. I've opted for a scheme that, I think, makes it look racy but nasty.

All the metallics are Alclad and the rest is Tamiya paints.

Completely OOB and no lighting

The stand comes with the kit - I just added some wires for interest
























I originally had turquoise for the leading edges but decided that it was to stark a contrast and looked to toy like. I ended up going for Gold Titanium which looks much better

It was a fun build and the only glue it needed was to secure the missiles to the wing

Well, that's all I have but thanks for looking. Feel free to critique

this is really cool, I know nothing of the subject but love the shapes of the airframe.

Beautiful paint work too.


Agreed. It looks sort of F-16ish, but that's really cool.

thanks guys


I hadn't heard of the 2199 series until a few years ago and I have bought most of the 2199 sets as a result

I do like these Bandai kits - they are engineered so well. I know everyone keeps saying that, but it's true. They're a dream to work with when getting lights in. You can cut away a lot of the supporting plugs and leave one or two and it still holds together well - better with glue of course.


I might even do my Lando Falcon soon with the SD
