Bandai 1/48 HG 0G Battle Frame Aestivalis

It's been a decade since "Martian Successor Nadesico" made its resounding splash on the anime scene--and the ripples are still being felt today! Now Bandai gives fans who missed out the first time a great chance to make up for lost time, by reissuing its 1997 Artillery Battle Frame Aestivalis High Grade snap-fit kit. Parts come molded in color, and the mecha will feature polycap-jointed articulation upon completion. Anchors extend out the back of the legs, artillery-style, to brace the machine when firing its big 120mm cannon. The Assault Pit (and any other Assault Pits from other Battle Frame Aestivalis HG kits) can be attached to the Battle Frame. A sheet of foil stickers is provided

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

How big is the finished model?

Prepare for a soaring display! The 1/48 HG Aestivalis stands tall at a majestic 225mm (almost 9 inches) when completed. Its impressive size captures the Gundam Frame's elegance and allows for intricate detailing, making it a centerpiece for any mecha collection.

Is it pre-painted or do I need to paint it myself?

This kit comes in pre-colored plastic with some parts molded in different colors. It offers a good base for beginners, but for the full anime aesthetics and personalized touches, some paintwork is recommended. This allows for customization and weathering effects, but requires additional materials and some painting skills.

What kind of articulation does it have?

Unleash the Aestivalis' full potential with its impressive polycap joint articulation! You can dynamically pose its arms, legs, wings, and even GN Drives for breathtaking action scenes. Recreate iconic maneuvers and soar through your display shelf with this highly mobile Gundam Frame.

Does it come with any weapons or accessories?

The Aestivalis is ready for battle! Get ready for: Rapid Rifle: Its signature long-range weapon adds firepower and tactical options to your displays. Field Lancer: A powerful melee weapon for close-quarters encounters, letting you recreate intense combat moments. Immediate Knife: A smaller blade for surprise attacks and tactical versatility. Assault Pit: This detachable platform expands your display possibilities and adds to the Aestivalis' imposing presence.

How difficult is it to build?

While snap-fit and glue-less, the 1/48 HG Aestivalis is rated as an "Intermediate" kit due to its size, numerous parts, and some intricate details. Beginners with some prior experience and patience can tackle it successfully, but experienced modelers will appreciate the complexity and customization potential.
