Limited Model (LM) (リミテッドモデル Rimiteddo Moderu?) is a line of Gunpla kits of the Mobile Weapons from the Gundam meta series. This line focuses on the lesser-known units from various Gundam titles that would have not otherwise received the model kit treatment from their respective lines. Their construction and design are comparable to the Gunpla kits of the early 1980s, where the parts are molded in one color and the articulation is limited, only with snap-fit assembly. Due to their limited production run, these kits were priced higher than those of their respective lines.[1] The LM series also included mecha from other anime titles such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, VS Knight Ramune & 40 FireThe Vision of Escaflowne and Martian Successor Nadesico, as well as characters from Final Fantasy VII and Apocalypse Zero.

Modelers refer to these kits as "Old kits" (旧キット Kyū kitto?) when comparing them to the more recent High Grade Universal Century/High Grade After Colony releases.

This article covers only the Gundam releases.
