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

This Nightingale is huge! Is it difficult to build?

Don't let the size fool you! The HGUC Nightingale uses snap-fit construction, making it surprisingly beginner-friendly. Even though it's a large kit, it breaks down into manageable pieces that click together satisfyingly. Plus, the instructions are clear and easy to follow.

Can it actually pose in those epic wingspan shots I see online?

Absolutely! The Nightingale's articulation is surprisingly good, especially considering its size. You can recreate iconic poses with its flexible wings, legs, and head. Just be careful not to overextend the wings, as they are delicate.

Does the pre-colored white and red limit customization options?

Not at all! The white and red are a great base, but the Nightingale is a canvas for your creativity. You can: Add decals or stickers for unique markings and emblems. Hand-paint for personalized details like weathering effects or battle damage. Swap weapons with other HGUC kits for different combat styles. Modify with custom parts or accessories, like additional thrusters or beam effects.

Is it worth getting even if I have other Gundams?

That depends! The Nightingale is a unique and impressive centerpiece for any Gunpla collection. Its size, articulation, and customization options make it stand out. If you're looking for a challenging and rewarding build with a truly epic display piece, the Nightingale is definitely worth considering.

Any tips for building such a large model?

Take your time! The Nightingale is a project to savor. Work in sections, and make sure all the parts fit snugly before moving on. Also, be mindful of the delicate wing sections, and consider using a stand for extra stability during display.
