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

Two Balls for the price of one? That's a deal! But are they identical or can I customize them?

You get two identical Balls in the set, but customization is definitely welcome! Each Ball has interchangeable 180mm cannons and twin guns, allowing you to mix and match for different looks. You can also add decals, hand-paint weathering effects, or even modify them with custom parts for unique Ball personalities!

Are they easy to build, even for a beginner?

Absolutely! These Balls use snap-fit construction, making them perfect for Gunpla newcomers. The pieces click together easily, and the clear instructions guide you through the process. You'll be rolling these Balls around your shelf in no time!

How poseable are they? Can they do those cute rolling poses?

While they may not be acrobats, these Balls have surprising articulation! Their arms and heads can be adjusted, and the spherical bodies allow for some creative rolling poses. Just be careful not to overextend their limbs.

Are these Balls just for display, or can I use them for play?

Both! The sturdy construction makes them great for display, and their articulation allows for some playful scenarios. Roll them into battle against other HGUC kits, or create your own mini Ball-vs-Ball tournaments!

Which Ball should I customize first? And what kind of decals would look cool?

That's up to you! Maybe one Ball gets a weathered, battle-hardened look, while the other stays shiny and new. You can find decals featuring numbers, symbols, or even cute faces to personalize your Balls. Get creative and have fun!
