One of my favourite and definitely an amazing Gunpla to acquire, even after having a Robot Damashii version of this grunt unit featured in the Gundam OVA 0080 U.C (War In A Pocket). I have put the toy and Gunpla side by side for a comparison, of course the kit had been touch-up. A MS from the 'Scarlet Team', this kit came exclusively with a RH-35E Draken manned for reconnaissance purposes I guess. Draken came with 2 sets of arms, one is pair are normal with fingers and other machinery like forceps for loading/unloading. The Draken resemble more of construction bot in my opinion. It's an awesome addition and definitely value add the Gunpla.  

GM Sniper, having one of the sexiest mecha design an grunt unit can offer, taking the design of GM Command and modified to sniper type, which the kit incorporated the adjustable sniper scope visor and that long sniping rifle. Also all the necessary weapons such as the 90mm machine gun and 2 beam sabers (attached to the rear hip) are included. Well balance and excellent articulation for a HG kit with no problem posing (even in kneeling) the MS in sniping poses with wide range shoulder joints and unique hand for holding the rifle.

Looking at the rifle, it's definitely a weapon for sniper :)

Yeah! The long rifle says it all. This GM is one of my fav design ^_^

i have the feeling (without knowing it for sure) that this MS belongs to the same time line of the Jegan Gundam... but i could be wrong LOL...

agree with you, this is a very good looking MS, much more when you consider that is a grunt unit and i like specially the color scheme and overall mecha design... nice decals and shield (albeit the latter looks a tad weak, compared with other shields available for grunt units)... neat paint job, pal !!!... =)

GM Sniper and Jegan both are mecha under the U.C timeline. Jegan was introduced to the EFSF army at a later stage which both are really well designed for visor type mecha. Though a grunt unit, GM Sniper II is specialized with few a attachment to certain task force.

Thank you for compliments and I enjoyed doing this Gunpla.
