Bandai 1/144 BB242 God Gundam

Bandai's latest version of the G Gundam (God Gundam), issued in the Generation Neo line of BB senshi Gundam kits. Molded in pre-colored plastic with Bandai's fantastic multi-gate technology (which allows multiple colours on the same tree), there are four trees (a lot for such a teeny kit!), and one tree of polycaps for the joints. Included for limited customisation are two left hands and two right hands, in day-glo orange plastic so you can pretend he's powering up with the mighty God Finger -- what? You want non-glowy hands? Not included, unfortunately! Despite all the photos on the box and in the instructions booklet, there are no grey/non-glowing hands in this kit. A note on the side of the box points out that the MG God Gundam hand parts will fit just fine.

    Assembly Guide

    Skill Level.2 Basic modeling skills are required. Parental supervision may be required for younger children. These kits are generally suitable for beginner builders. A basic set of modeling tools are required including nippers, hobby knife, sanding sticks/paper, file, and tweezers. No glue is needed for the general assembly. Parts will need to be removed by using a pair of nippers and cutting the part away from the runner. Parts may require clean-up where they were removed from the runner.

    Gunpla (plastic model kits) are a snap together assembly and do not need plastic cement to complete. We always recommend having some plastic cement handy as a part of your modeler's tool kit. If you prefer to fix your model in a particular pose then plastic cement will work. Plastic cement is also perfect to use if a joint is loose. Apply plastic cement in a single thin layer and allow it to dry completely before test fitting. Re-apply more cement if necessary.

    Gunpla (plastic model kits) are designed to be built and displayed without the need for painting. Kits are molded in different colours replicating the colours of the actual mecha from the Gundam series. A technique called colour separation, where multiple parts of the model are molded in different colours on the same sprue is also used. Gundam kits often include stickers or water-slide decals that can be applied to the model to enhance its appearance. Some Gunpla kits come with pre-painted parts or parts with pre-applied details, such as metallic or translucent finishes.

    Many modelers still choose to paint their kits to customize and add further detail. Painting allows for more creativity and personalization, enabling modelers to achieve unique effects, weathering, and colour schemes that may not be available out of the box. However, the kits are designed to be enjoyable and visually appealing even without painting, making them accessible to a wide range of hobbyists.
