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 Yonem Kirks Zaku looks awesome! Is it difficult to build compared to other HGUC kits?

Don't worry, it's beginner-friendly! The snap-fit system is the same as other HGUC kits, so you'll be clicking away and wielding that sniper rifle in no time. However, its custom armor pieces might require a bit more attention during assembly.

How's the articulation compared to other Zaku kits?

The articulation is decent! You can achieve dynamic sniper poses with the arms and legs. The backpack with the spare barrel might limit some arm movement in certain positions, but with some creative posing, you can still showcase its sharpshooting potential.

Can I customize this Zaku beyond the pre-molded parts?

Absolutely! Decals add unique markings, hand-painting brings weathering effects or custom details, you can even swap weapons with other HGUC kits. This Yonem Kirks Zaku is your canvas! Unleash your creativity and make it your own legendary sniper.

The emerald green eyes look cool. Are they stickers or pre-molded?

Those piercing eyes are pre-molded, adding to the awesome details without the need for stickers. You can further enhance them with paint or topcoat for an even more eye-catching effect.

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

The custom armor pieces might require slightly more glue for a secure fit, especially the backpack. Some reviewers mention the sniper rifle needing some adjustment for a proper hold, but it's nothing a hobby tool can't fix. Overall, this Zaku offers a unique build experience and a shelf-worthy addition for any Gundam fan!
