Bandai 1/144 HG RTX-65 Guntank Early Type

It's been a very long time since the Guntank had a new rendition, and we're very excited that its time has come! This Guntank is based off the early models from the "Gundam: The Origin" OVA, and the detail is stunning! Featuring great articulation in the waist, turrets, and arms, this kit will be as poseable as you can reasonably expect a mobile suit without legs to be!

Wide range of moving parts including arms and caterpillar tracks make it possible to strike dynamic poses.
Various movable gimmicks like the twisting of the waist are adopted to reproduce poses from the anime.
The details of each armored parts such as triple machine guns, quadruple cannons and smoke dischargers are finely reproduced.
Marking stickers are included to recreate the settings.

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

Classic Tank Terror or Poseable Prototype? What's its deal?

This kit captures the iconic Guntank design in its pre-production "Early Type" form. While lacking the later model's iconic arms, it boasts rolling treads, pre-painted olive drab and gray details, and a menacing charm. Choose if you prefer raw tank power or posable potential.

Pre-Painted Panzer or Custom Canvas? How much customization is possible?

The Guntank Early Type comes pre-painted in its signature wartime colors, ready for immediate display. However, experienced modelers can add custom weathering, panel lines, or even experiment with different markings to personalize their tank.

Beginner Builder or Seasoned Mechanic? How challenging is it to assemble?

Snap-fit parts make it perfect for beginners. Even younger builders can enjoy putting together this classic mobile suit. The lack of complex articulation keeps things simple, while still allowing for some dynamic posing.

Where's the Battlefield Happening? Any special features or gimmicks?

The rolling treads are a fun feature, letting you roll the Guntank around your display! It also features a hatch-opening gimmick revealing the pilot's cabin inside. These small details add charm and interactivity to this iconic tank.

Beyond Display Duty? Any compatibility or expansion options?

While primarily a standalone display piece, the Guntank Early Type can be combined with other 1/144 Ground Type model kits for larger Zeon forces displays. Imagine a battalion of these rolling tanks on your shelf!
