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

Does the Universe Booster attach to the HG Star Build Strike without modifications?

Yes, the Universe Booster is specifically designed to fit seamlessly onto the HG Star Build Strike model without requiring any modifications. It can even be attached while the star-shaped effect parts are still in place.

Can I use the Universe Booster on other 1/144 Gundam model kits?

While the Universe Booster is technically compatible with other 1/144 scale model kits, due to its unique design and connection points, it may not attach perfectly or look as natural as it does on the Star Build Strike. You may need to use additional parts or modify the kit to achieve a proper fit.

What are the "star-shaped effect parts" and how do they work?

The Universe Booster comes with translucent "star-shaped effect parts" that can be attached to the back of the booster to create a dazzling visual effect. These parts are designed to capture light and create a realistic illusion of energy particles surrounding the booster.

Does the Universe Booster come pre-painted or do I need to paint it myself?

The Universe Booster comes molded in several different colors, minimizing the need for painting. However, some details and markings may require additional paint for a more polished look. Decals are also included for further customization.

Is the Universe Booster a difficult model kit to build?

The Universe Booster is classified as a "High Grade" model kit, which means it has a moderate difficulty level and is suitable for builders with some experience. The assembly process involves snap-fit parts and requires basic hobby tools like nippers and a hobby knife.
