This one is something of an odd bird, as it represents first a fairly basic plastic kit Bandai's HGUC GM Striker with the addition of B-Club's resin cover kit for the "Custom" bit and a few of my own tasteful alterations. Completed November 29, 2011; this model is literally "one of a kind", and to my knowledge no one else has ever reproduced it.

HGUC - High Grade Universal Century, part of Bandai's kit grading system the key bit is HG or High Grade as it usually indicates the size or scale of the kit (1/144, the same as a Hot Wheels car or approximately the height of a tin of pop) and the means of assembly (snapfit, though glue is not unwelcome).
GM - Typically pronounced 'Jim' and represents the term General Mass-Production unit.
