HGUC #146 RGM-79SP GM Sniper II

Earn 18 Reward Points

The RGM-79SP GM Sniper II was one of the last variants of the GM constructed during the One Year War. The RGM-79SP GM Sniper II borrows most of its design from the RGM-79G GM Command, including arguably the best-looking variation of the GM Head. The RGM-79SP GM Sniper II was the most dominant variant of the GM built during the One Year War, but because of the high production costs saw limited production. The RGM-79SP GM Sniper II could utilize projectile and beam weapons thanks to an upgraded generator. On paper, the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II was more powerful than the RX-78-2 Gundam!

Here’s what Bandai included alongside the HGUC RGM-79SP GM Sniper II:

  • 75mm Sniper Rifle
  • 90mm GM Rifle
  • Shield
  • Beam Saber x2
  • Draken E


The RGM-79SP GM Sniper II pairs several well-designed points of articulation with a sturdy and familiar build to create a stellar HGUC entry! The RGM-79SP GM Sniper II uses double-jointed elbows to allow the model to hold its Sniper Rifle properly. Firing from a knee is made super easy by the double-jointed knees and thigh swivel! These updates to the joint structure provide the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II with a very dynamic look upon completion. Even the teeny Draken E has some simplistic articulation in its arms and legs!

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

This HGUC rendition of the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II features the Franz EF-KAR98k 75mm Sniper Rifle, named after the Karabiner 98k German service rifle used during WWII. The 75mm Sniper Rifle fires projectile rounds which are unaffected by magnetic forces and solar winds, giving a targeting advantage over similar Beam-powered weapons. The rifle’s bolt-action mechanism made it terrible at engaging enemy Mobile Suits, so the HGUC RGM-79SP GM Sniper II also includes a 90mm GM Rifle to defend against enemy attacks. For close-quarters engagements, the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II includes a pair of Beam Sabers stored on the back skirt armor.

HGUC #146 RGM-79SP GM Sniper II

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGUC #146 RGM-79SP GM Sniper II with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
