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

Does this armor make Portanova bulky and slow?

Nope! The Commander Armor adds defensive power with shoulder guards and a chest plate, but the snap-fit parts and Portanova's base design ensure she stays agile for tactical maneuvers. Think strategic enhancement, not clunky burden.

How's the pre-painted navy finish? Can I customize it?

The sleek navy adds a commanding presence, perfect for display. But customization is encouraged! Add your own weathering effects, decals, or personal touches to make it a truly unique leader's outfit for Portanova.

Does this armor work with other 30MM models besides Portanova?

It's designed specifically for Portanova's body type, but get creative! Experiment attaching it to other models for interesting customization options. You might discover unexpected leader combinations.

Can I pose Portanova dynamically with the Commander Armor?

Absolutely! The armor maintains Portanova's full range of articulation. Imagine issuing orders from a smoky battlefield, leading the charge with a determined stride, or strategizing over a holographic map with a steely gaze.

What makes this Commander Armor special for Portanova?

It transforms Portanova into a symbol of leadership and tactical prowess, customized for her unique silhouette. Own a battlefield commander who inspires the troops and dominates through calculated maneuvers. This armor is more than just an upgrade; it's a chance to unleash your inner strategist and conquer with Portanova's strategic edge, all wrapped in a striking navy package.
