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

Is this Lightning Buster Gundam model pre-painted?

No, like most Gunpla models, the HG Lightning Buster Gundam comes in unpainted plastic. This allows you to customize the paint scheme to match your preference or recreate the classic colors from the anime.

I'm new to Gunpla. Is this a good beginner kit?

The HG line is known for being a good entry point for Gunpla builders. The Lightning Buster Gundam features a moderate level of detail and clear instructions, making it a great choice for beginners who are looking for a rewarding build experience.

How big are the expandable wings?

The size of the wings varies depending on whether they are folded or expanded. In their fully extended state, the wings significantly increase the overall size and presence of the Gunpla model, adding a dramatic flair to your display.

Does the Lightning Buster Gundam come with any weapons besides the beam cannons?

While the deployable beam cannons are the main focus, the backpack also houses a missile launcher, adding another layer of offensive capabilities to your Gunpla model.

Can I pose the Lightning Buster Gundam with its beam cannons in the firing position?

Absolutely! The deployable beam cannons offer great posing options. You can switch between the folded position for a streamlined look or extend them for a dynamic firing pose, recreating iconic scenes from the anime.
