It’s already July, so I thought I’d post an update of my “Year of the GM” project. As you can see below, I only managed to finish six kits so far, slightly below the expected rate of one kit per month.

I don’t like naming favourites, but I’m most happy with how the Thunderbolt GM turned out. Based on the Modelers-G points however, it seems the GM/GM Command has a commanding lead (pun intended) over the others. You can view them below, and let me know if you agree with the ranking.

As for the other six kits, there’s been some changes to the initial plan. After some deliberating, I decided on these final six:

No changes:

 

GM Sniper II White Dingo: Instead of using the GM/GM as base, I decided to use as much of the original HGUC parts as possible. Maybe I’ll just modify the proportions a bit.

GM Light Armor: I’ll persist with the idea of using the RG RX-78-2 as base, and sticking a GM head on it. Which GM head is not fixed; either one from a resin kit or from the upcoming HGUC releases this year.

New challenges:

Powered GM: I’m planning just a simple custom paintjob for this one. Not so keen on the orange-white color scheme.

GM Cold District Type: I was so impressed with the GM/GM kit that I decided to make another GM variant using it as base. I’ll most likely do the same modifications like the GM Command, and just play around with the weaponry.

GM White Dingo: An addition to the White Dingo team. I’m thinking of using the upcoming HG GM Guard Custom as base and painting it to White Dingo colors.

GM Sniper Custom: I preordered mine from P-Bandai and it should arrive by August. Hopefully that leaves me with enough time to finish it by year’s end.

So that’s what I have planned for the rest of the year. I’m a bit busy in July, so I’ll most likely restart the project next month. I’ll have to be super productive if I want to finish all six planned kits. Maybe at the cost of reducing modifications. Well, we’ll see…
