Introduction:
I had fun modifying the HGBF GM/GM kit and decided to do it again. This time I decided to build the GM Cold District Type, despite it being portrayed as a bunch of jobbers in the 0080 OVA. Like the GM/GM Command build, I’ll be kitbashing with various HGUC parts.

Materials & methods:
The work in progress page is here.
Painting was relatively straight forward:
Chest, feet: Gray FS36118
Waist, backpack: Midnight blue
Shield, various red bits: Red + a bit of Gray FS36118
Joints: Gray FS36081
The rest: MS White
This time I went for the weathered look, so I applied some enamel wash, dry brushing, and paint chipping effects. The numeric decals on the shield were also scratched and dabbed with weathering pastel to add to the effect. Then like always it’s finished with a flat topcoat spray.

Results:

Some action poses and group photos:

Discussion:
I can only summarize this build as ‘everything going to plan’. I don’t think I encountered any problems during this build, and painting was a breeze too.
Posing this kit for photography was also fun, and that’s due to the flexibility and articulation of the GM/GM kit.
So this is the 8th kit for my Year of the GM project, and if everything goes to plan, I’m on course to finish this year with 12 GM kits. On a side note, my shelf is starting to get a bit crowded…
