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

Is this the classic green Zaku I everyone knows?

Absolutely! This HGUC MS-05B Zaku I captures the iconic design of the Zeon grunt suit, with its mono-eye, spiked shoulder armor, and menacing green color scheme. It's a true representation of the mobile suit that dominated the early battles of the One Year War.

How's the articulation for posing?

The HGUC Zaku I features decent articulation for its size and price point. You can move the arms, legs, and head to recreate various poses, from wielding its signature machine gun to delivering a powerful body slam. However, don't expect the same level of flexibility as larger or more premium Gunpla kits.

Does it come with any weapons or accessories?

Yes! The Zaku I comes equipped with its standard armament, including a machine gun, a bazooka, a shield, and a beam saber. You'll have everything you need to recreate iconic scenes from the anime or pose your Zaku I in a variety of combat scenarios.

Is it easy to build for beginners?

Definitely! The HGUC Zaku I uses snap-fit construction, meaning you don't need any glue or tools to assemble it. The pre-colored parts also eliminate the need for painting, making it a perfect project for Gunpla newcomers.

Are there any customization options?

While the pre-colored parts are convenient, the Zaku I offers plenty of room for personalization. You can add your own stickers or decals for unique markings, or even try hand-painting for a truly custom look. You can also find various third-party upgrade parts to enhance the articulation or add extra weapons.
