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

This GM looks classic! Is it difficult to build for a beginner?

Not at all! The HGUC GM is known for its beginner-friendly snap-fit construction. The pieces click together easily, and the instructions are clear and concise. You'll be building this iconic mobile suit in no time, even if it's your first Gunpla experience.

Can I pose it in different ways?

Absolutely! The GM has decent articulation in its arms, legs, and head, allowing for a variety of poses. You can raise its beam spray gun for a combat stance, lower it for a more grounded look, or even have it hold its beam saber for a dynamic attack.

The pre-molded white and gray looks cool, but can I customize it further?

Of course! While the pre-molded color scheme is a great starting point, the GM is your canvas. You can add decals or stickers for unique markings, hand-paint weathering effects or battle damage, or even swap weapons with other HGUC kits. Make this GM your own!

Is it worth getting even if I have other Gundams?

The GM is a timeless classic and a must-have for any Gundam fan. Its simple yet effective design, beginner-friendly build, and customization options make it a versatile addition to any Gunpla collection. Plus, it's a great way to practice your Gunpla skills before tackling more complex kits.

Any tips for building and displaying my GM?

Take your time and work methodically. Don't be afraid to use a hobby knife for a cleaner finish on the edges. Once you're done building, consider using an action base to pose your GM in dynamic ways. You can also find display stands specifically designed for HGUC kits.
