About this creation
My last Gundam creation(I think), at least for a while, I present to you the RX 78-1 Prototype Gundam, the predecessor to the original RX 78-2 that we all know and love. Although a predecessor, this model came later in Gundam lore through model kit alternatives and video games. click here for more info on the subject mech! .

This model was made using my new mech factory frame V1.5. Like my RX 78-2 Redux his shield is thinner, lighter and sleeker. Over all this model is even thinner than my RX 78-2 model.

Most noteable differences / changes / upgrades from my RX 78-2 Redux model:
Colour Scheme
Bigger shoulders
Differently sculpted forearms
Different skirting
Improved V fins
Backback upgrade
Thinner waste
Upgraded ankle guards
Simplified beam rifle
....and a few other minor adjustments!

More Mech and Legoformer creations on the way!

Pls also check out my YouTube video for more details on this MOC: click here! .

Gundam ready for action...































Side by side with my RX 78-2 redux model....

I love robots-mechs, and I consider that because of that, I m pretty good at it, as I will work on it until it satisfies me, but, looking at the reffinements on this latest piece of yours, the sculpting, style, poseability, it will take me weeks just for one mech, to just aproach this level of sophistication, it s just fab, I ll have to do one for gen vartok in the future, I ll study yours then, as its a great example of what the ultimate mech looks like, bravo chris!

Quoting Marc dZ When I look at it closely, I'm impressed by all the details and the complexity of your build. The SNOT technic is impressive. and the work on the head still amazes me. Excellent!

Quoting shuji gillis you know whats really cool is that i am a fan of gundam and am 1/2 Japanese i was born in japan and i build the real models (which can kill your fingers and make the day go by in what feels like minutes) so i know what they really look like and you did a magnificent job

top of my game huh, thx, but hope i am not on the way down from the top going forward LOL. - the head is more or less (except for the new V fins) the same design as the ones i used for my RX 78-2 redux and BZ defender models. Cheers chris
Quoting David Alexander Smith You are on top of your game at the moment. The head on this one seems especially well made.

Quoting Tim C Excellent work, Chris. Love the chunky look. The feet turned out really well. This is instantly recognizable as a Gundam. Great posability as well. You never cease to amaze me with your robotic builds. Well done, as always.
