PMX-003 The-O is the personal unit of Paptimus Scirocco, which he used during the final events of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. Despite its overwhelming size, the PMX-003 The-O is one of the most agile Mobile Suits seen during the Gryps Conflict. The in-universe PMX-003 The-O had 50 vernier thrusters to keep the gigantic frame as mobile as possible. The PMX-003 The-O uses a specially made control interface that only Scirocco can use. This HGUC rendition has flown off shelves ever since its initial release in 2002, so be sure to grab a copy when available!

The accessories for the PMX-003 The-O are as follows:

  • Beam Rifle
  • Beam Saber x4


Articulation
 –

The PMX-003 The-O is one of the most sizable entries in the HGUC line. This kit should stand in a little shorter than your average Master Grade and much taller than most of your High Grade collection! The PMX-003 The-O’s legs feature a unique “quasi inner frame” loaded with red piping to recreate the armor paneling effect in the original artwork. The oversized armor paneling may inhibit some movement and posability. There is also no support for using an Action Base right out of the box.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

PMX-003 The-O features a pair of articulated sub-arms hidden beneath the front skirt armor. While in combat, these arms each deploy with two Beam Sabers, Giving PMX-003 The-O the potential to wield four Beam Sabers Seimoultaneiously! For ranged engagements, PMX-003 The-O equips a custom Beam Rifle with an output closer to that of a Mega Launcher. This weapon comes molded in multiple colors for an added level of detail. Only the two most prominent thrusters on the front skirts come printed in the correct shade of green. There are a handful of large thrusters molded in gray plastic that poke through the yellow armor. These will only require some green paint on the interior. Bandai represented the rest of the thrusters with surface detail on the yellow armor panels. These will need some green and gray touch-up to match the box art and source material.

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 #36 PMX-003 The-O 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.
