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.

This HGUC kit captures its signature features, including: Blazing Red Color Scheme: Ditch the standard green! This Zaku II rocks a striking red paint job, standing out on any shelf.

Beam Saber with Grip: Unleash the signature red beam saber, a testament to Matsunaga's skill and a dynamic posing option.

How's the articulation compared to other HGUC kits?

The articulation is on par with other HGUC kits, allowing for various dynamic poses. You can move the arms, legs, and head to recreate Matsunaga's daring maneuvers, like wielding the beam saber or aiming the machine gun.

Does it come with any other weapons besides the beam saber?

Yes! The kit includes the standard Zaku II armament, including a machine gun, a bazooka, and a shield. You'll have everything you need to recreate iconic scenes from the anime or pose your Zaku II in various combat scenarios.

Is it easy to build for beginners?

Definitely! Like most HGUC kits, this one uses snap-fit construction, meaning no glue is required. The pre-colored parts also eliminate the need for painting, making it a perfect project for Gunpla newcomers.

Are there any customization options?

While the pre-colored parts are convenient, the Shin Matsunaga Zaku II welcomes customization. You can add decals or stickers for unique markings, hand-paint for a personalized touch, or even swap weapons with other HGUC kits to create your own Zeon variation.
