Assembly Guide

Skill Level.1. Most adults & children can assemble Skill Level 1 kits with little to no difficulty. Very basic hobby tools are recommended including a pair of nippers, a hobby knife, but are not essential. No Glue is needed for these kits. Kits are all snap together build and most parts can be removed by twisting and pushing without the need to snip with nippers.

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 Guncannon looks different from the usual ones. Is it harder to build?

Don't worry, it's still beginner-friendly! The snap-fit system and clear instructions make it a smooth build, even with its slightly different design. Just enjoy clicking together this unique cannon-wielding titan!

What are the main differences between this and the regular Guncannon?

What's the difference between the Guncannon Production Type and the regular Guncannon?

The Guncannon Production Type is a more affordable and mass-produced version of the original RX-77-2 Guncannon. It sacrifices some of the prototype's features, like the beam rifle, for a cheaper 90mm machine gun. It also has simplified armor and a slightly different head design. The HGUC kits reflect these differences, with the Production Type having a simpler build and fewer parts.

How poseable is the kit?

The HGUC Guncannon Production Type has good articulation for its age and price point. It features ball-jointed shoulders and elbows, swivel hips and knees, and ankle joints that allow for some dynamic posing. However, the arms can be a bit restricted due to the bulk of the shoulder cannons.

Are the stickers or water decals?

The HGUC Guncannon Production Type comes with stickers for the markings and emblems. While not as precise as water decals, they are easier to apply and can still look good with careful application. Some third-party water decal sets are available for this kit if you prefer a more professional look.
