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

Absolutely! This specific kit includes both the VF-31F Siegfried and two Lil Drakens, allowing you to recreate Hayate Immelman's signature setup.

Can the VF-31F transform with the Lil Drakens attached?

Yes, the kit utilizes a specially designed locking mechanism that allows the Lil Drakens to stay securely attached throughout all three transformation modes (fighter, gerwalk, battroid).

Is Hayate's custom color scheme pre-painted or do I need to paint it myself?

The kit comes pre-molded in Hayate's signature black and white color scheme, complete with details like the "Grim Reaper" markings on the fuselage. No painting is necessary, but you can certainly add custom touches if you desire.

Is this kit for experienced modelers or beginners?

While the snap-fit design makes it beginner-friendly, the small parts and delicate transformation mechanism might require some patience and dexterity. Some experience with model kits is recommended.

Improvements: Nothing, great store
Excellent kit, beautiful detaling

The 1/72 VF-31F is a fantastic kit, it’s beautifully detailed, so much fun to build but has a fatal flaw, the ankle joints are made from a metallic plastic that snaps in the build process, even with very little pressure and is a nightmare to fix (I ended up glueing it together with araldite as plastic cement and superglue were too weak), however I would still buy another as even though it has this flaw it is still so much fun to build otherwise and looks a treat on the shelf
