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 Cielnova too slow or bulky?

Is the pre-painted gray cool, or can I customize it?

The sleek gray looks stealthy and tactical, perfect for display. But customizing is encouraged! Add weathering effects, decals, or personal touches to make it a truly unique defense upgrade for Cielnova.

Will this armor work with other 30MM models besides Cielnova?

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

Can I pose Cielnova dynamically with the Defense Operations Armor?

Absolutely! The armor maintains Cielnova's full range of articulation. Imagine deflecting attacks with a confident stance, holding enemy lines with unwavering resolve, or scouting from a fortified position with a steely gaze.
