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

What's the difference between the Ver. 2.0 and the original MG Char's Zaku II?

The Ver. 2.0 boasts a significant upgrade over the original MG Zaku II released in 2001. Here's a quick rundown of the key improvements: Articulation: The Ver. 2.0 features a completely revamped inner frame, allowing for a much wider range of motion and more natural poses. This includes the ability to kneel on one leg, a feat impossible with the original kit. Detail: The Ver. 2.0 has sharper molding and finer panel lines, resulting in a more intricate and realistic appearance. Bandai also employed a new "slide assemble" technique for the pipes, making construction smoother and easier. Accessories: The Ver. 2.0 comes with the same weapons as the original (machine gun, bazooka, heat hawk), but also includes a bonus crane vehicle not found in the earlier kit.

How challenging is it to build?

The Ver. 2.0 is classified as a Master Grade (MG) kit, which means it's aimed at experienced modelers. It has a higher parts count and requires more complex assembly techniques compared to beginner-friendly kits. However, Bandai's engineering is generally excellent, and the instructions are clear and well-illustrated. If you're comfortable with basic hobby tools and have some prior model building experience, you should be able to tackle this kit without too much trouble.

What kind of paint do I need?

The Ver. 2.0 comes molded in red and gray plastic, but for the full Char Aznable experience, you'll want to paint it in his signature crimson color scheme. Any acrylic paints specifically formulated for model kits will work well. Bandai also offers official Gundam Markers that are pre-matched to the specific colors used in the anime.

Are there any aftermarket parts available?

The popularity of the Ver. 2.0 has spawned a thriving aftermarket scene, with various third-party manufacturers offering additional parts and upgrades. These can range from simple water slide decals to custom weapons and replacement parts. This allows you to personalize your Zaku and take it to the next level of detail and customization.

Where can I buy it?

The Ver. 2.0 is readily available from online hobby stores and retailers specializing in Gundam model kits. You can also find it at some larger toy stores and comic shops. Prices can vary depending on the retailer, so it's always a good idea to shop around for the best deal.
