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.

Absolutely! Decals add unique markings, hand-painting brings weathering effects or custom details, you can even swap weapons with other HGUC kits. This V-Dash is your canvas, paint your own story of Neo Zeon innovation upon its pre-molded glory!

Any concerns about the Overhang Pack backpack? Is it fragile or difficult to attach?

The Overhang Pack is sturdy, but its large size and articulation points might require some careful handling. Some reviewers mention occasional detaching during posing. However, hobby glue or tightening techniques can easily fix these issues.

Anything else I should know before adding this unique Gundam to my shelf?

While not as widely known as other Gundam models, the V-Dash offers a unique build experience and a distinctive shelf presence. Just be prepared for its backpack limitations and the potential for some extra attention during assembly.
