#15 Thousand Sunny Flying Model One Piece Grand Ship Collection


The Thousand Sunny Flying Model hails from the non-canon film One Piece: Stampede, which released in commemoration of the One Piece anime’s twentieth anniversary! The Straw Hat’s used the Thousand Sunny Flying Model to climb a knock-up stream to reach the Pirate King’s forgotten treasure. Much like the first time the crew went up a knock-up stream, it required modifications of their current vessel, leading Franky to create the Thousand Sunny Flying Model! With this equipment, the Thousand Sunny could safely ascend the knock-up stream using the Coup de Burst to generate enough lift and soar up to Treasure Island! Franky dubbed this configuration the Thousand Sunny: Emperor Penguin Mode, giving the ship’s figurehead a crowned penguin mask to match the two-tone wings.

Included alongside the Thousand Sunny Flying Ship Model for accessories:

  • Display Base
  • Display Stand
  • Water Effect Part x6

Notable Attributes:

The Thousand Sunny Flying Model and the rest of Bandai’s Grand Ship Collection make an excellent choice for modelers of any skill level to express their love for the series. This model ship is unlike any traditional model ship you’d find on the shelves of your local hobby shop, as the Thousand Sunny Flying Model is a snap-build kit made for assembly without any tools required! Bandai designed each part to pop right off the runner without any nippers, and they included a thorough sheet of color-correcting stickers for a great display piece right out of the box. The lower hull of the Thousand Sunny Flying Model easily separates from the rest of the ship, allowing builders to choose between displaying the ship in its entirety or just what’s above water level!

This kit includes:

9 Runners total (A, B, C, D, E1, E2, F1, F2, BA0)
Total Piece Count – 85 with 1 Unused Part
Foil + Marking Stickers

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the Thousand Sunny Flying Model with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
