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 is a High Grade (HG) Gundam kit, and how does it differ from other grades?

High Grade (HG) Gundam kits are a line of Gunpla (Gundam plastic model kits) known for their affordability, ease of assembly, and good level of detail. They are typically 1/144 scale and are a great choice for beginners. The main difference from other grades, like Master Grade (MG) or Perfect Grade (PG), is the smaller scale and simplified inner frame construction.

Are High Grade Gundam kits pre-painted or do I need to paint them myself?

High Grade Gundam kits are usually not pre-painted. They come molded in different coloured plastic pieces that you assemble. While you can build them without painting, many enthusiasts choose to paint their kits to enhance detail and customise the appearance. Painting is optional but can greatly improve the final look.

Do High Grade kits require glue or special tools for assembly?

Typically, High Grade Gundam kits are designed to be snap-fit models, meaning they don't require glue or special tools. However, having basic modeling tools, such as hobby nippers and sandpaper, can help you achieve cleaner and smoother results.

How long does it take to assemble a High Grade Gundam kit?

The time it takes to assemble a High Grade kit can vary widely depending on your experience level, the complexity of the kit, and whether you choose to paint or customise it. On average, it can take a few hours to a day or more for a detailed build, but it's a hobby that allows you to take your time and enjoy the process.

Can I pose High Grade Gundam kits after assembly, and do they come with accessories?

Yes, High Grade kits are designed for poseability, and they often come with multiple points of articulation. They also include various accessories like weapons, shields, and optional hands to create dynamic poses. Many kits also have interchangeable parts to customize their appearance further.

Solid HG, has a bit too much going on with the design

I love the HG Graze kits. They feel extremely solid and look awesome up on a shelf with a bunch of other kits, but the Schwalbe has a bit too much going on with its design for me. Building it was a great experience, especially since I did a full custom paintjob for it, but the "schwalbe" parts get in the way of articulation in some areas, namely the waist with the bigger thighs and the leg binders. The kit has great accessories and can be used with almost every HG weapon you could think of, but the wire claw struggles to stay up on the wire included in the kit.
