What makes it a "North American Type" gundam?
It could have been inspired by the US military or it could have been an exclusive kit to the united states just like the rx 78 entry grade was exclusive to the USA's Targets

This was a model seen in the Cucuruz Doan's Island spin-off manga, and was used by the Federation's NA forces. Other than that, it's just a standard Local Type with a different backpack.

A badass dark devil

I'm really into the design of this Gundam. Thanks to the translucent red visor covering the eyes (yes, it has eyes AND visor) and the color scheme, this RX-78 looks almost demonic and feels like an appropriate boss that brings desperation to Zeon soldiers. Regarding quality of the kit: Its engineering is pretty much what you'd expect from a typical modern day HG kit. Color separation is pretty satisfying except for the little crotch V -- which is essentially a general problem of HG Gundam and GM kits. As a GTO kit, it has more surface details than average HGUC kits and you can do some panel lining (using a black marker of course). Like other HGGTO kits, this one comes with a sheet of decals. The stripes are also decals, so it does require some effort to make the model look complete, though personally I don't think those decals are particularly hard to apply. Some small ones are tricky to work with at 1/144 scale, but it's mostly fine to skip them.
