Is there a difference between this model and the HGUC 137 Zaku I Sniper Type (Yonem Kirks Custom)? It looks like the only difference is the eye, but there is a lack of photos for this one
shoulder eye and backpack has the tubes.

Old but great

very great kit that still holds its own despite its age and articulation. Essentially most will likely have this kit on its knee in a snipping position which is what it was designed to do.

Great for 2006!

This was one of the first Zaku variants I fell in love with in the franchise, and the kit holds up very well to my expectations. The color palette is amazing, the wires into the rifle are a cool touch, my only gripe is the stickers. The sniper rifle has two scopes, and the smaller one has a tiny green foil sticker for the lens. This is perhaps the hardest sticker on the kit, but one of the only 4 in the entire build. This kit mostly uses the same mold as the regular HGUC Zaku I from the mid-2000s, so it comes with the machine gun and a slot for the bazooka shoulder rest (this is hidden by a filler panel instead of including the shoulder rest). I'd definitely encourage you to kitbash this thing with the normal Zaku I and the Black Tri-Stars Zaku I. This kit comes with plenty of hand variations, so use them on other kits of similar size that are lacking them. IMPORTANT: THE FRONT SKIRTS COME SEPARATED. HALLELUJAH. The polycap joints can be quite stiff and produce some seamlines, but nothing you can't hide or fix easily. The head antenna also likes to fall off with minimal pressure, and the monoeye unfortunately is static. Overall, I highly recommend this kit for any Zeon mobile suit enthusiast.

Simple but effective High Grade

If you're tired of the Feddies having all the snipers then this is the kit for you. It has good quality and holds itself nicely.
