HGUC #158 Type 89 Base Jabber

Original price was: $15.99.Current price is: $13.59.

The Type 89 Base Jabber is a Sub-Flight Support Unit used by the Earth Federation during Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. Unlike its predecessor, the Type 89 Base Jabber operates primarily in space as a means of transporting Federation Mobile Suits to the frontlines without wasting their onboard propellant. Soldiers pilot the Type 89 Base Jabber from the cockpit and can hand off flight controls to the attached Mobile Suit depending on the situation.

Articulation –

This HGUC model kit is like no other! There are almost zero moving parts on the Type 89 Base Jabber. In total, there are only 45 pieces required to build the Base Jabber, far below the standard for HGUC models! The Type 89 Base Jabber will build up super fast and take much less effort to complete than traditional Mobile Suit model kits. The Type 89 Base Jabber’s articulation is limited to the sliding footrests on the topside and underside. There are several optional parts for alternating between different versions of the Base Jabber, including adapters for securing your 1/144 scale models to the Type 89 Base Jabber.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The largest of the included option parts is the external propellant tanks, which mount to the underside of the Type 89 Base Jabber. Remove this component when a second Mobile Suit is attached. There is also a set of landing gear attached to the Type 89 Base Jabber. Bandai uses a foil sticker to recreate the glow of the cockpit, which should be yellow for color accuracy.

Tips and Tricks –

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 HGUC #158 Type 89 Base Jabber with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making 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 the 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.
