ADDING PINS TO YOUR GUNPLA

A simple trick I've learned recently from DC23, adding pins o your gunpla! Here's how to do it.

First prepare the materials. You'll need pins


a pin vise w/ drill bit (that matches the size of the pin)


pliers, pencil/pen, toohpick, wax paper and super glue.

Once the materials are ready, select a part where want to insert the pin. Now mark that spot with a pencil/pen and then right after start drilling it with the pin vise. Make sure that you drill straight so that the pin wont curve when you insert it.

After drilling, wipe out the excess plastic from the hole. Start preparing the super glue by putting it on top of a wax paper cut out. The glue wont dry fast with this method allowing you ample to have time to apply the glue on the hole. Use a toothpick when applying. After this insert the pin and let it stick on the part. Remove the excess pin with the pliers and that's it! You've now added a pin to your gunpla!

It will look something like this:


Be sure to try this trick to enhance the looks of your build!

LET'S TALK ABOUT GRADES

If you're just new to gunpla this question might have popped in your head: What gunpla grade should I buy?

Since I've been building quite a lot of gunpla maybe I can help you out answer this question. Let me go through each grade that I know of.

Advance Grade (AG)
This grade is actually the simplest 1/144 Bandai has to offer. It's a kit well fit for young ones due to the easiness of the build and it's limited movement (only head and arms move). You don't actually need tools to build this. This is definitely not a good kit to start with if you want to know the basics of gunpla.
