GUIDE for Beginners

Lvl 1 : Try a couple of our Level 1 model kits. No tools are required. These "touch gate" snap-fit models are perfect for starters.

Lvl 2 : Next try HG models. High Grades have a lot of play value upon completion, but don't forget you'll need basic tools!

Lvl 3 : To continue building more models, you can build a collection of tools to make the process smoother and easier.

Lvl 4 : Once the kit is built, you can make it look better with a variety of methods like panel lining, top coating, and applying decals!

Amazing Build! - This model conveys the general blocky yet slim look of the 78-2 faithfully and beautifully which has also afforded it an excellent range of articulation due to not having the bulkier armor of it's successors. The kit is very simple to put together the only trouble spots are the stickers as they are with most kits but if you get some paint or some gundam markers you can easily avoided them, the eye sticker also isn't necessary as the eye piece is clear yellow so all you have to do is paint it paint and either do your best to avoid painting over the eyes or just paint over the whole thing then carefully scrape the eyes clean. If I had to think of any negatives for this kit it would be the lack of panel lines sculpting on the fronts of the shoulder armor, this is only a negative because the model has panel lines opportunities everywhere you'd expect including the top of the shoulder armor but the front and back are just flat. The safety nubs on the v-fin are also a a bit big and unsightly but this also won't be a negative if you intend to remove them as the you have plenty of room to get your nippers between the nub and fin to carefully cut it off and then lightly sand what remains of it until your fin looks uniform just be careful not to overdo it. Another tip is that the front skirt armor is designed to be separated, simply use your nippers between the two balls, you can sand down the plastic between the balls afterwards but leaving a bit of will help them not be loose due to friction regardless the results will make the model look more dynamic in kneeling and jumping poses.
