The Federation sought to create a series of combat-ready Mobile Suits to combat the Principality of Zeon’s growing forces. The Earth Federation developed the Guncannon to support the RX-78-2 Gundam from medium ranges, equipping the Mobile Suit with a pair of massive hardpoints on its shoulders that can mount an assortment of weapons. The Guncannon can wield The RX-77-2 Guncannon also features a Core Block System, enabling pilots to eject from the Mobile Suit in dire situations. The RX-77-2 Guncannon was so effective in its specific role that the Federation would begin a limited production run of the Mobile Suit and a later mass production variant.

  • XBR-M-79a Beam Rifle
  • Spray Missile Launcher x2
  • Hand Grenade x2
  • Core Fighter

Tips & 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 RX-77-2 Guncannon with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own 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 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.
