Series Assembly Guide FAQ

Bandai 1/60 Shinohara Helldiver

The Helldriver is a Shinohara ARL-99B that stands at 7.95 meters high. (This kit is not that height!)

This kit contains parts molded in dark green, purple, grey, and translucent blue plastic. Rubber joint parts and decals are also included. The instruction manual unfolds into a lovely poster of the unit with artwork by Yuji Kaida

    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

    Which Helldiver version is this kit?

    There are a few Helldiver variations across anime and kits, so knowing the source material helps. Is it the Shinohara ARL-99B from Patlabor? The ARL-99 Type-99 from Mobile Police Patlabor? Specifying the series gives you accurate answers.

    How poseable is it?

    Most 1/60 Helldivers feature good articulation, especially in the limbs and neck. Imagine recreating dynamic police patrols, chases, and combat poses on your shelf! Some versions might have limited head movement, so check specifics.

    Does it come with any weaponry or equipment?

    Typically, kits include the Helldiver's 40mm cannon, combat knife, and spare head part. Some versions might offer optional equipment like riot shields, stun grenades, or different weapon options.

    Is it easy to build for beginners?

    1/60 kits can have more pieces than beginner options. While snap-fit parts and instructions help, the Helldiver's detailed armor and smaller parts might require some patience and attention. It's not the easiest, but definitely doable with focus.

    Is it worth it for Patlabor fans and mecha enthusiasts?

    Absolutely! Owning a 1/60 Helldiver is a dream for many Patlabor fans. The accurate details, poseability, and iconic weapons make it a rewarding build and a stunning display piece. Mecha enthusiasts will appreciate its unique design and police robot charm. It's a must-have for any mecha or Patlabor collection!
