BLOG: HGUC Gundam Ground Type – Work in Progress #1
|Still on the train of reviving old builds, and because backlogged kits won’t build themselves, the HGUC Gundam Ground Type is being done in parallel with the previously posted HG Strike Freedom Gundam. Again this is one of those kits already in the CATALOGUE that’s bound to be updated.
The most notable differences between this build and the old one are the painted chest details. Not really liking the idea of using stickers for right chest vent so that one got painted, as well as the vulcan gun on the left side. Also painted the collar armor to match. Apart from these the kit is mostly color accurate so this build shouldn’t take too long. It’s also a good segue to get started with the HGUC Gundam Ez8.
On a related note, the official name of its retconned predecessor unit is the RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type.
