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 this Zeta Gundam different from other HGUC versions?

This Zeta Gundam is a sleek upgrade! It boasts several improvements over the standard HGUC version, including: Improved articulation: The Evolution Project Zeta features advanced joint technology, allowing for more natural and dynamic poses. Imagine it soaring through the air, beam saber ablaze! Enhanced detail: The kit features sharper, crisper molded parts, making the Zeta's iconic design even more striking. Check out those intricate fin details! Pre-colored parts: Many parts come pre-colored in vibrant shades, reducing painting time and effort. However, the kit also welcomes customization for those who crave it.

Is it still beginner-friendly?

Absolutely! The snap-fit construction remains, making it perfect for Gunpla newbies. The improved articulation might require slightly more attention during assembly, but it's still a breeze compared to more complex kits.

How does the transformation work?

The Evolution Project Zeta retains the iconic transformation gimmick of the original design. The kit cleverly utilizes its advanced articulation to seamlessly switch between mobile suit and wave rider modes. Imagine the satisfying clicks as you convert your Zeta from land to air domination!

Does it come with any weapons or accessories?

Yes! The kit includes the Zeta's signature beam saber, beam rifle, and shield. You can also pose it with its beam smart missiles for extra firepower. While additional customization options like custom weapons or effects are always welcome, the kit provides enough to create epic displays right out of the box.

Is it worth getting even if I already have other Zeta Gundams?

That depends! If you're a die-hard Zeta fan or simply appreciate upgraded Gunpla experiences, the Evolution Project Zeta is a worthy addition. Its improved articulation, detail, and overall refinement make it a true standout in the HGUC lineup. However, if you're satisfied with your existing Zetas, it might be more of a luxury purchase.
