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 set make Portanova bulky or slow?

No, it's designed for lightweight agility! The strategically placed armor plates enhance defense without sacrificing Portanova's natural mobility. Think tactical protection, not a clunky tank.

What kind of special features does this armor offer?

It's all about close-quarters combat! You'll get shoulder armor with hidden blades for surprise attacks, knee guards for enhanced durability, and a large shield that can be mounted on the forearm or backpack for adaptable defense.

Is the light gray pre-painting a good base for customization?

Absolutely! The neutral gray provides a perfect canvas. Add weathering effects, decals, or paint it to match your existing collection or create a unique look for your Portanova's special squad.

Can I use this armor on other 30MM models besides Portanova?

The armor pieces are primarily designed for Portanova's body type due to joint compatibility. However, with some creativity and modification, you might be able to adapt them to other models for unique customization options.

Is this set worth it for Portanova fans who love close-quarters combat?

Definitely! The focus on agility, hidden blades, and adaptable defense makes it ideal for tactical close-quarters specialists. If you love customizing your Portanova and expanding its combat options, this set is a must-have!
