Technically started the last week of last year, this build is the first completed kit of the new year.
This the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II as seen in the anime ‘Mobile Suit Gundam 0080 – War in the Pocket’, which is a six episode side story of Mobile Suit Gundam 0079. One of the features of the RGM-79SP is the drop down visor, that allows more precise targeting when using the sniper rifle.
The Build –
The build of this kit was quite smooth and I even end up doing some detail painting, including the sniper rifle.
Final Thoughts –
At first I was not a fan of the RGM-79 GM design and the primary reason I got this kit was because of it being a sniper variant. But, I have to admit I am liking the overall design and might be adding some additional GMs to the collection.
My next build is going to be a mobile suit that is on my Top 10 list of favorite designs, the ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam from the anime MSG SEED Destiny. The Strike Freedom is one of those rare designs that I plan to build more than one of.
