@Ranalcus: thepuddingcup is correct; unfortunately the Gaplant is a prototype suit. According to Gundamwiki there WAS a mass-production version of the Gaplant, but it was only produced in Mobile Armor mode, it couldn't be transformed into Mobile Suit mode.

Also, the Zudah was a prototype suit too.

Just to clarify, can we kitbash kits for the general category? Or are we only allowed to use one kit?

I'll be entering the advanced category with an HG RGM-79C GM Type C. Looking forward to this one, but HLJ will be shipping it with the Blitz I have on order, so that'll but some of my time out... See how we go :)

I suppose I should declare my entry in the official thread.

I'm going for the lowest of lowly grunts. An MS-05 Zaku I in RGM-79 colours. It will be an MG kit with some left overs from the RGM Sniper and RX-79[G] that I used in the Reaper dio.

Entering a MG Acguy. Freddie trial and evaluation unit. So it will not be a 'recolour' as such but to represent as realistically as possible how a captured enemy machine may appear under wartime situations.

Ok, I have decided.  I will be making my MG Ball marked with Zaku Cannon details.  I don't think i have violated the grunt suit rules there... if I have let me know.

I will be entering the GM Cannon 2.

Shaid, can you clarify some things for me please? I found that all these other (what I think are) Grunts suits also have the similar markings around neck and sleeves which I thought signify that they belonged to the Sleeves, the third neozeon movement.
Am I mistaken and are they all just Full Frontal Elite Guards. Sorry I am not that familiar with UC Lore.

Also if for example the colour scheme I pick is Black and Green Can I use several shades of green just to sexify it. :P

Sorry for all the questions!

I should be able to enter a HGUC GM II ver. Sleeves

@flamingeyebrows: the Sleeves are just whatever is left of zeon. the design of sleeves on the suits does not signify that they are the personal guards of full frontal. although i found the complexity of the sleeves are a sign of hierarchy ie geara Zulu normal v guard type.

Anyway, I've made a smaller version of the banner to put in the signature box.

All paint schemes will be subject to spectral analysis. Incorrect shades no matter how small the variation will not be allowed.

How about using a bit of common sense  :-\ As long as the scheme is basically the same WHO CARES!!!!
