Instruction Manual
The System Base 001 is created for 1/144 scale gunpla kits.  But as you know, 1/144 scale gunplas comes in various form & sizes.  In this area, the System Base 001 is pretty versatile, as the base can be widen for the larger 1/144 gunplas (Eg. HG Sazabi, HG Teiren etc), and can be retracted for smaller 1/144 gunplas (Eg. HG 0 Gundam, HG RX-78-2 Gundam etc.). 
The base can also be tilted to create the sense of a mobile suit in a maintenance bay.
The System Base 001 also includes 2 weapon racks with 4 weapons holders. Not that much, as 2 holders can hold only one weapon.  But you may also put extra holders from the Weapon System 001 / 002, as they are interchangable.

Final Thoughts:
The System Base 001 is a very versatile base to display your High Grades gunpla kits.  Those who likes to display gunpla kits in maintenance mode would appreciate all that this display base offers.  The System Base 001 is not a very complex in terms of functionalities, but gets the job done with the inclusion of weapon racks and the ability to tilt the base at an angle.  Personally, I would had prefer extra accessories like 1/144 scale maintenance staffs and support vehicles..etc.  That would have made this display base a must have.  But I would still recommend that gunpla builders should own at least one System Base 001, as any kit you put on there would look really great.
