and, here I go..

Name: RX-78GP-01HPM Ambrosius
Type: experimental high powered mobility multi-class mobile suit 
Modeler: MaftyNavue

2 x 60mm vulcan gun (fire-linked)
1 x "Ymir" Anti-ship Sword
1 x BOWA XBR-M82A beam rifle (optional for mid range operation)
1 x anti-beam coating "crusader" shield
    A.E.Blash XBR-SH-83d beam saber x 2 (attached to shield)

Following the war between EFSF and Republic of Zeon, Anaheim begin to
intensified research for a fast mobile suit that can travel in such a
manner at long distance. The idea is basically needed because the
warzone consists of large area of space. Minimalizing time travel
between each of warzone is one of the key to achieve victory.

After GP-01Fb destroyed by the GP-02A, Anaheim electronics
begin to salvage the remaining body and also to collect the data.
From the data given at GP01Fb salvage. GP-01Fb basically created
for domination in speed, acceleration, maneuverability at space. But
not in long range cruising. So, Anaheim decided to pour it's idea into
a new GP-01. A truly nightmare at speed.

GP-01HPM, Gundam Dual Vernian "Ambrosius" is created based from the
idea, using a new FF-XIV-Dv Dual Vernian Core Fighter system, the
Core fighter is attached into the backpack. Due to highly complicated
way to use the booster full potential, additional operator is needed
to operate the core booster.

The main idea of GP-01HPM Ambrosius is to full charge
at incredibly high speed towards enemy and then dominate them in close
combat attack, while still maintaining the energy capacity for the next
An anti-beam coating "crusader" shield also given to
utilizing GP-01HPM speed for distracting enemy formation, also 2 beam
saber attached at the shield for additional attack power.
An anti-ship sword "Ymir" also given to the GP-01 for ambushing the enemy

Domination at Speed, Mobility, Agility, Attack Power.
All of these elements makes GP-01HPM trully a worst opponent at space.
But this idea is scrapped because of the highly cost to produce a
single unit for this kind of MS and this unit would be giving a clearly
advantage for the EFSF army, and also Anaheim decided to approve
another project, the GP-04G Gerbera.

The new boxart.. Tehehe..

  1. hebat bangat bro~!

    mafty, i am fine if you dont make frequent post if you do this kind of post :D this looks great bro, the clean finish, and also the SB parts ^^ although the gattai looks a bit OO Raiser-ish, but i think it works! good job!

  2. looking good...

    really looking good :D

    this is actually a lot better than i thought

  3. @ZD: wkwkkw thanks bangat ZD.. your words really encourage me to do the next job.. stay tune eh? hehe..

    @mage: again I really thanks to you mage.. I do really hope that with my "newbie" skill can meet your high quality challenge..
    but after you said something like that, I'm relieved..

  4. Bad-ass Sword :D seems you learned quite a lot from them :D

    is this painted ? i still see the seam-line there ^^

  5. @Aya: yep painted, but..
    I don't remove the seamline, yet cleaning the spruce..

    actually this is my first HG kit, my father gave it to me when I was at 6th grade Elementary school.

    before I had to clean it, the challenge deadline come quite fast, so I decided to use it for learning how to paint, how to use plaplates, how to mod a gunpla. I also learned wet sanding from this gunpla too.

    Actually there are two more agenda that i also missed using epoxy putty and washing technique, well maybe I will do it properly at the next project.

  6. Great to see such splendid work from you Mafty! Plus its your first time doing and its already so clean and nice!

  10. It really seem like the GP01 series is a really versatile moblie suit and a gundam with a sword as tall as the suit is a win for me XD

  11. This is a nice build, I really love the sword, it's bulky just like the Mobile Suit :D
