  In the animation, the Gundam has no mounts for its weapons anywhere on
its body (except perhaps for the shield, which I think can be stuck onto
the backpack). The weapon mounts on the latter-day model kits - the High
Grade, Master Grade, and Perfect Grade versions - are just the invention
of the modelmakers, who don't seem to be able to decide which arrangement
they like best.

  In the HG kit, the bazooka attaches to the Gundam's butt and the rifle
(and two extra sabers!) can be stowed inside the shield. The MG kit puts
the bazooka on the butt and the rifle on the hip. The PG kit puts the
rifle on the butt and the bazooka, best as I can tell, goes nowhere. All
three allow the shield to be mounted on the backpack.

  So yeah, there's no official arrangement. You can pick your favorite, I
guess. :-)
