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

How is the "Sand Brown" version different from the regular Dom Tropen?

The Sand Brown is a special edition with a deeper, richer brown color scheme compared to the standard Tropen's tan. It gives it a more weathered, desert-hardened look, like it's been through countless battles under the scorching sun.

Does the pre-colored brown eliminate the need for painting?

Absolutely! The Sand Brown version comes pre-molded in its signature brown, eliminating the need for painting and saving you time and effort. It's perfect for beginners or those who prefer a finished look straight from the box.

How's the articulation for such a bulky mobile suit?

While the Dom Tropen is large, Bandai didn't skimp on articulation! The HGUC kit allows for a good range of movement in the arms, legs, and head. You can pose it aiming the Hyper Bazooka, swinging the Heat Hawk, or striding across your shelf like a desert titan.

Are there any customization options for the Sand Brown?

You bet! While the pre-brown is convenient, the Sand Brown welcomes customization. You can: Add decals or stickers for unique markings and emblems. Apply weathering effects to enhance the desert-worn look. Swap weapons with other HGUC kits for a more personalized arsenal. Even modify the design with custom parts or accessories.

Is the Sand Brown Dom Tropen worth getting if I already have the standard Tropen?

That depends on your preference! If you love the Tropen and want a unique color variation, the Sand Brown offers a distinct look and collector value. But if the standard Tropen's color scheme suits you fine, you might not need both. Ultimately, it's a matter of personal taste and adding variety to your Zeon shelf.
