HG GM Type C Mass Production English Manual and Color Guide

Bandai 1/144 High Grade HGUC RGM-79C GM Type C Mass Production English Construction Manual and Color Guide

RGM-79C GM Type C Mass Production Mobile Suit as seen in Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory. There is actually a Master Grade version of this available if you prefer a bigger model kit to work on.

As a "newbie" plamodel kit fan I was always astounded with the reverence and esteem that some fans hold the "lowly" GM with. In a typical anime of the Gundam franchise, the GM or any other Cannon Fodder unit is eye candy to the fan as it gets seen being blown up so easily thereby satiating the need of the audience for some "action" sequence.

To those select plamodel builders however, the lowly GM (or any cannon fodder unit for that matter) is an integral part of the franchise. And they pay homage to it buying the kit and even going so far as to creating mods that would make you think that the lowly GM was the star of the show.

The HGUC RGM-79C GM Type C Mass Production is selling for 870 yen at Amiami, 1200 yen at HobbyLink Japan, 960 yen at Hobby Search
