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

Is this Armor Just for PORTANOVA, or Can I Use it with Others?

This close-fighting option armor set is specifically designed for the PORTANOVA model. While some parts might be compatible with other kits, it won't offer the full functionality unless used with PORTANOVA.

Is the Dark Red Pre-Painted, or Can I Customize it?

The armor comes pre-painted in a menacing dark red, but customization is definitely encouraged! Experiment with additional paint, decals, or weathering effects to make your close-combat PORTANOVA truly your own.

How Does the Armor Make PORTANOVA a Better Brawler?

This set is all about melee dominance. It features reinforced arms and legs, sharp claws and blades, and an optional chest armor with spikes, transforming PORTANOVA into a terrifying close-quarters fighter.

Can I Still Use PORTANOVA's Standard Weapons with the Armor?

Yes! The close-fighting armor is designed to work with PORTANOVA's existing weapons like its beam saber and rifle. You can easily switch between ranged and close-combat options depending on the situation.

Is this Upgrade Just for Display, or Can it Battle Too?

Both! The pre-painted dark red armor with its menacing details looks fantastic on display, adding a brutal visual edge to your PORTANOVA model. But don't underestimate its power – this upgrade unleashes PORTANOVA's inner berserker, ready to tear through the battlefield in a whirlwind of dark red fury.
