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.

Frequently Asked Questions

This GM Quel looks amphibious! Can it really switch between land and water modes?

Absolutely! That's the Quel's defining feature. It comes with interchangeable parts for its legs, transforming it from a powerful land walker to a sleek hovercraft for water dominance. Imagine it patrolling coastlines or emerging from the depths, ready for action!

Is it harder to build than other Gunpla kits because of the transformation?

Not necessarily! The HGUC line is known for its beginner-friendly nature, and the Quel is no exception. The snap-fit parts make switching between modes intuitive, and the instructions clearly guide you through the process. It might take a bit longer than a standard GM, but the satisfaction of seeing it transform is worth it.

The pre-molded blue and white looks cool, but can I customize it further?

Definitely! The pre-shading is a great base, but the Quel is your canvas. Add decals or stickers for unique markings, hand-paint weathering effects or battle damage to show its amphibious adventures, or even swap parts with other HGUC kits for a truly personalized mobile suit.

Is it worth getting even if I have other GMs?

If you love GMs and want something unique, the Quel is a fantastic choice. Its amphibious design, transformation gimmick, and customization options make it a standout addition to any Gunpla collection. Plus, it lets you explore different display possibilities, from land-based poses to dynamic aquatic scenes.

Any tips for posing and displaying this versatile GM?

For land poses, try a dynamic stance with the beam rifle raised, or a grounded position with the beam saber drawn. For water scenes, use a clear acrylic stand to simulate the hovercraft mode and create an illusion of movement. Remember, the Quel is all about versatility, so get creative and have fun showcasing its amphibious prowess!
