HG The Origin #10 RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type


The RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type is one of the early prototype Mobile Suits developed from Dr. Tem Ray’s RX-78 program during the One Year War. This particular iteration received several updates for a series of environmental tests, trading all of the previous version’s space-use equipment for ground and aquatic-use components. The RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type features dust coverings on many of its joints and a hydrojet-equipped backpack that enables underwater combat. The data gathered by the RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type’s testing would contribute to the development of the RX-78-02 Gundam and the RX-79[G] Gundam Ground Type, which utilized several components from the RX-78 program.

Included alongside the HG Gundam Local Type for accessories:

  • Machine Gun
  • Beam Saber x2
  • Shield


The HG Gundam Local Type features an entirely new construction, as this was the first Gundam-type Mobile Suit introduced in the HG The Origin Line! This model features double-jointed limbs and swiveling thighs supported by an array of polycaps, providing a wide range of motion to create dynamic poses. The HG Gundam Local Type features a built-in 3mm attachment point for connecting the model to an Action Base without any adapters! This model includes all of the markings necessary to recreate the HG Gundam Local Type’s appearance during the Earth Federation’s environmental tests on Earth.

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 HG The Origin #10 RX-78-01[N] Gundam Local Type 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.
