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 are the main differences between the HGUC Crossbone Gundam X1 and the X1 Kai versions?

The X1 Kai features minor improvements like a redesigned head unit, additional thruster details, and a slightly different color scheme. It also includes the "Skull Heart" markings for the X1's final battle configuration.

Does this kit require glue for assembly?

No, the 1/144 HGUC Crossbone Gundam X1 uses a snap-fit construction, meaning no glue is necessary for assembly. This makes it a good choice for beginners or those who prefer a quick and easy build.

How well does the kit pose and hold action poses?

The articulation is decent, allowing for a good range of motion in most joints. However, the shoulder armor can be a bit restrictive for certain poses. Additionally, the ankles have limited side-to-side movement.

What weapons and accessories are included in the kit?

The kit comes with the iconic Beam Zanber, a Beam Rifle, a Shield, and a Beam Saber. It also includes some optional hand parts for holding the weapons in different ways.

Are there any popular customizations for this kit?

Many builders enjoy adding panel lines for a more detailed appearance. Some also like to paint the kit in custom color schemes or apply decals for additional markings. Advanced modellers may even attempt scratch-building custom weapons or accessories.
