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.

I never want to see another bead again

Char's Zaku is a classic suit, and alongside the RX 78-2 it's kits are often the benchmark for how a grade will be, and this kit is no different. Beautifully constructed with a lot of detail in places that really showcase all the small details the anime producers put into their main antagonists classic suit. Posable as all get out, and beautifuly realised, this suit is destined for the dioramas of fights against rivals.

However if I see another damn bead in my entire life I think I'm going to scream.

The pipes around the legs, waist and head, aren't one solid unit as they were in other grades of this kit I've put together, instead the head and the waist ones are plastic wires you thread individual beads onto to create the pipes. Many, many beads. You then cut the wire to size (to their credit it has a helpful indent where you're meant to cut) and gently place it into the kit while desperately trying to hold back the beads from their desire to fall off. Even that pales in comparison to the legs, which is one of the first parts you build. The leg pipes are in fact SPRINGS, meaning you're dealing with a wobbly spring instead of relatively sturdy plastic wires. This culimnates in having to stretch out the spring to put the final piece on which locks the beads in place, a fiddly task that can stretch the string out and cause to much slack to be created.

The kit is beautiful, and it's bound to be a highlight of your collection, but those beads will make or break you.
