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 makes the Efreet Schneid different from other Zeon mobile suits?

This Zaku variant is a stealthy assassin! Unlike the bulky Zaku II, the Schneid boasts: Sleek Design: Its sharp angles and streamlined body make it agile and sneaky, perfect for ambushing Federation forces. Enhanced Mobility: The Schneid features advanced thrusters for incredible speed and maneuverability, allowing it to dart around the battlefield like a desert viper. Unique Weaponry: It wields a deadly Heat Dart Launcher, firing razor-sharp projectiles for ranged combat, and a Heat Hawk for close-quarters dominance.

How's the articulation compared to other HGUC kits?

The Schneid's articulation is excellent for its compact size. You can move the arms, legs, and head to recreate its dynamic movements, like aiming the Heat Darts or wielding the Heat Hawk in a fearsome pose.

Is it easy to build for beginners?

Absolutely! Like most HGUC kits, the Schneid uses snap-fit construction and comes pre-colored in a menacing black and gray scheme, eliminating the need for glue or painting. Beginners can enjoy the satisfaction of building and posing this unique mobile suit without any prior experience.

Are there any customization options?

While the pre-colored parts are convenient, the Schneid welcomes customization. You can: Add decals or stickers for unique markings. Hand-paint for a personalized touch. Swap weapons with other HGUC kits. Even modify the design with custom parts or weathering effects.

Is the Efreet Schneid worth getting if I already have a bunch of Zakus?

That depends! If you love Zaku designs but want something different, the Schneid offers a refreshing change with its sleekness, agility, and unique weaponry. It's a great addition to any Zeon shelf, especially for fans of stealthy mobile suit tactics.
