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 Metallic Coating Sazabi different from the regular HGUC version?

This Sazabi ditches the standard plastic for a stunning pre-colored metallic finish, making it a true king of your Gunpla collection. The gold and silver accents add a luxurious touch to its iconic armor, elevating it from a mobile suit to a masterpiece.

Is the metallic paint durable? Will it scratch or chip easily?

The metallic coating is surprisingly resilient! Bandai uses a special high-quality process that ensures the finish stays vibrant and chip-resistant during normal handling and display. However, it's still recommended to avoid excessive friction or abrasive materials to maintain its pristine condition.

Does the pre-colored finish limit customization?

Not necessarily! While the metallic coating is the star of the show, you can still add your personal touch. Apply decals for unique markings, hand-paint for additional weathering details, or even modify it with custom parts for an even more personalized Sazabi.

Is it poseable despite the metallic finish?

Absolutely! The HGUC articulation system shines here. The Sazabi moves with surprising flexibility for its size, allowing you to recreate iconic poses from the anime or craft your own dynamic displays. The metallic finish doesn't hinder its movement in any way.

Is the Metallic Coating Sazabi worth the extra cost compared to the regular version?

That depends on your preferences! If you prioritize a stunning display piece and value premium finishes, the Metallic Coating Sazabi is definitely worth it. However, if you're primarily focused on affordability and customization options, the regular HGUC version might be a better fit. Ultimately, the choice comes down to your budget and what you value most in your Gunpla collection.
