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 Dom Tropen different from other Dom variants?

The Tropen is a desert-adapted beast! Unlike the standard Dom, it boasts: Sand Brown Color Scheme: Ditch the green, the Tropen rocks a menacing sand brown paint job, perfectly camouflaged for desert warfare. Enhanced Heat Tolerance: This Dom is built to handle scorching temperatures, with additional vents and a rugged design. Hyper Bazooka: Forget the standard bazooka, the Tropen wields a massive Hyper Bazooka, raining devastation on Federation forces from afar.

How's the articulation compared to other HGUC kits?

The Tropen's articulation is good, considering its bulky size. You can move the arms, legs, and head to recreate its powerful poses, like aiming the Hyper Bazooka or swinging the Heat Hawk.

Is it easy to build for beginners?

Absolutely! Like most HGUC kits, the Tropen uses snap-fit construction and comes pre-colored in its sand brown scheme, eliminating the need for glue or painting. Beginners can enjoy building and posing this iconic mobile suit without any prior experience.

Are there any customization options?

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

Is the Dom Tropen worth getting if I already have a bunch of Zaku kits?

Definitely! The Tropen offers a unique and powerful Zeon design with its desert specialization and heavy weaponry. Its bulky frame and iconic Hyper Bazooka make it a standout addition to any shelf, especially for fans of ground combat mobile suits.
