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

What difficulty level is this kit for a beginner?

While not the most complex kit, the 1/144 HGUC Blue Destiny Unit 2 EXAM features some small parts and details that may be challenging for absolute beginners. However, it still offers a good balance of challenge and enjoyment for those with some prior experience.

Does this kit come with the EXAM System activated?

Yes, the kit comes pre-molded with the EXAM System activated, displaying the distinctive blue color scheme and head design. However, you can also choose to paint it in its standard colors if desired.

Is the articulation good for posing and dynamic action?

The articulation is generally good, with decent range of motion in the arms, legs, and head. However, the ankles have limited side-to-side movement, which may restrict some poses.

What are some popular customizations for this kit?

Popular customizations include adding panel lines for a more detailed appearance, painting the kit in different color schemes, and adding decals or stickers for additional markings. Some skilled modellers also like to modify the kit to create a custom "EXAM Unleashed" version.

Are there any known issues or problems with this kit?

Some users have reported issues with the fit of certain parts, particularly the shoulder armor. Additionally, the beam saber effect parts can be fragile and prone to breaking. However, these issues can be mitigated with careful assembly and handling.
