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 included in the kit?

The HGUC Super Gundam kit includes the Gundam Mk-II and G-Defensor units, allowing you to build both the mobile suits individually or combine them into the Super Gundam configuration. You also get beam rifles, beam sabers, shields, vulcan pods, and other weapons for both configurations. The kit comes with instructions and stickers for detailing.

Does the G-Defensor unit transform?

Yes, the G-Defensor can transform into its flight mode independently of the Gundam Mk-II. This allows you to display it in various ways and recreate different scenes from the anime.

How difficult is the kit to build?

The HGUC Super Gundam is a High Grade kit, meaning it's aimed at intermediate modelers. While it's not as complex as some Master Grade kits, it still requires some experience and attention to detail. The instructions are well-illustrated and easy to follow, but some parts may be small and fiddly.

What tools do I need to build the kit?

You will need basic modeling tools such as a hobby knife, sprue cutters, tweezers, and sandpaper. You may also want to have some paints and markers if you want to customize your Super Gundam.

What are some other things to consider before purchasing the kit?

Check the price and availability of the kit from different retailers. Read reviews from other modelers to get their insights on the kit's build quality and difficulty. Consider your experience level and whether you're comfortable building an intermediate-level kit. Think about whether you want to keep the Super Gundam in its default color scheme or paint it custom colors.
