MS. GM

I always found it interesting that the Gundam Universe would occasionally have feminine mech designs (NOT U FUMINA BOT) despite the Gundams themselves being gender-less. Some great examples include the Nobel Gundam, Farsia, GN Archer and Miss Sazabi. Since these designs are so few and far between, this I started this kitbash with the sole purpose of creating the most badass female GM to roam the battlefield!

In planning this kitbash, my options were limited; there are very few kits that have “slimmer limbs” and kitbashing a Nobel Gundam with a GM was basically impossible with regards to the proportions.

In the end, I went with the GN Archer and Nobel gundam due to their similarities in proportions. With a few minor mods to the waist and backpack, I was able to make these two kits compatible! As for the color scheme, that went through a few phases in planning. Originally, I went for a two color scheme: A colbalt violet mix and white. I felt that this combo was sorely missing some color separation, so I decided to revisit one of my favorite color schemes from the Duel Gundam Assault Shroud! I just love how the blue and orange colors complement each other.

Originally I devised this kitbash as my entry to JoJo Hobbys and stuff’s GM contest. However, one of the requirements of that contest is that the entry must be 50% GM…my kit is 70% Nobel Gundam, 20% GN archer, 10% GM/GM. So unfortunately, I can’t enter this kit. Stay tuned for my GM contest entry later this month (if I finish in time)!

  1. Grats man, this is a really cool looking custom and I kinda want one for myself now lol.

    Also great poses, I know how much of a pain it is to get those beam ribbons to behave properly.

    Where is that chunky rifle from?

    1. Thanks you saintism! I found out the hard way the Nobel doesn’t have the best articulation and gonna have to paint a few of the scratches I made posing it 😩

      The rifle in the left hand is from the hg ground gundam and the one in the right is from the Atlas Gundam!
