The RGM-79 GM is a simplified version of the RX-78 Gundam, designated for mass production. To reduce production costs, the GM is equipped with a simple cockpit block instead of a transforming Core Fighter, and its arnament consists of a single beam saber and short-range beam spray gun. Mass production of the GM doesn’t begin until relatively immense resources enable it to produce hundreds of these mobile suits in just three months.
Some of the nice features would be cockpit hatch can open to reveal the pilot within (but I did pay attention to painting the pilot), The legs contain booster units for use during atmospheric combat (I have painted it silver), The backpack cover can be removed to show the main reactor and maneuvering verniers (The small verniers explained the low thrustering abilities). With the waist mount latch, the beam spray gun can be stored on the GM’s hip.
What I like most about this kit is the uniquely bazooka back-mounted rack which allowed the bazooka to be stowed on it. If you switch to the usual backpack, the twin sabers can be attached.
