  If it's a customized HG it's WAY customized. I have both kits and though
they have tons of obvious similarities, I don't think you could get a
Hardy out of a Heavy without basically re-doing every part of the body
(I.e., making a completely new MS). I prefer to think of it as a GM-Cannon
version of the Heavygun.

  Is that the big red naughty looking Vigna Zirah? Is that why it can have
a Gundam-styled head?

  Well, I've heard it called "GM Sniper Custom" which I've taken to mean a
"Customized Sniper Version of the GM" _not_ "A customized Sniping MS for a
particular person." In that sense I think the "Custom" in its appellation
ought to be replaced by "Variant" or "Refit" or even "Upgrade", since
custom generally implies a one-of-a-kind model.
