Build Report

The Mecha
The RGM-79G GM Command is the result of the Federation’s refined manufacturing processes and is built on a modified RGM-79 GM frame with added thrusters for maneuvaribility. The RGM-79G is primarily tasked with colony defense. Manufacturing costs are high for this variant and production for this type is extremely limited.

The Kit
This kit was done as part of Project WOOB. The rules state that the kit has to be built fully out-of-the box only without any modifications. So I decided to give the kit a custom camouflage.

The camouflage was done by handbrushing, which is a first for me. It didn’t turn out as I’d imagine, but it didn’t look half bad. I have also continued the cheesecake decal on the shield of this kit, just as I did in my Powered GM. Maybe it’ll become my signature, who knows.

My entry actually won the Silver Medal, to my utter surprise. It’s the first contest I joined and the first time I’ve won anything. Incidentally, this kit was done in between the birth of my son so hopefully, I can show it to him someday when he’s old enough. Here’s to more good things to come!
