What Is A Bandai Model Kit?
A Bandai model kit is a plastic model of a character from anime, manga, tokusatsu, or video games. Produced by the Japanese company Bandai, these models are usually assembled from parts that snap together without the need for glue or paint, although some advanced kits may require these tools.
Bandai model kits cover a wide range of genres, including science fiction, fantasy, realistic military, and monster designs. The most popular line of Bandai models is the Gunpla line based on the Gundam anime series. Other much-loved collections include Batman™, One Piece™, Dragon Ball Z™, and Aura Battler Dunbine™, all of which are available at Hobbyco.
Bandai model kits are available in a variety of scales to suit the needs and space availability of all anime enthusiasts. No matter what your favourite property is, there's sure to be a Bandai model kit for you!

Are Gundam Model Kits Hard To Build?
Gundam model kits are plastic replicas of the giant robots from the various Gundam anime series and are an extremely popular type of anime model kit. These models are designed to be constructed by hobbyists, and many people enjoy the challenge of building and painting these intricate kits. However, some would-be builders may be discouraged by the perceived difficulty of the task. So, are Gundam model kits hard to build?
The answer depends on your level of experience and expertise. If you are a complete beginner, then it is likely that you will find the task somewhat daunting. There are a lot of small parts to align and assemble, and it can be tricky to get everything to fit together correctly. However, with a little patience and perseverance, anybody can learn to build these iconic models.
If you have some experience with model building, then you may find Gundam kits to be relatively straightforward. The instructions are usually clear and easy to follow, and it is generally not necessary to make any significant modifications to the parts in order to get them to fit together correctly. However, even experienced modellers can sometimes run into trouble when assembling more complex kits.
Gundam models, also known as Gunpla, are categorised according to their size and the relative difficulty of putting them together. A Master Grade Gunpla, for example, tends to be quite complex and is better suited for an experienced model kit enthusiast. A No Grade, on the other hand, is perfect for a beginner or someone more interested in displaying their model than spending time putting it together.
In general, then, it is fair to say that Gundam model kits can be challenging to build, but that is part of their appeal. The satisfaction of completing one of these detailed models is well worth the effort required. So if you are looking for a fun and rewarding hobby, consider giving Gundam kit building a try.
