This review is from: Bandai Hobby Going Merry Model Ship “One Piece” (Toy) I love this model, it looks just like the one in the show!(and it really doesn’t need any painting) The only area where it falls short is in “durability” because it feels like everything on the top of the ship (the sails and railing) could break very easily if your not very careful when handling it. I actually broke part of the white railing when I was removing it from the tree.(luckily I had a bottle of superglue handy) A few tips before putting this together: Put the stickers on first(it will be much easier than doing it when it’s put together and don’t rush like I did and put the ship’s figurehead (sheep) together before attaching it to the ship because it’s really hard to take apart! The only thing I didn’t like about this model was the flimsy hollow plastic base. Other than those issues this is a must buy for any One Piece fan! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful Think about grabbing some extra paint, December 6, 2013 By Ari – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Bandai Hobby Going Merry Model Ship “One Piece” (Toy) In the description it says “Colored plastic; no paint required.” So I kind of thought: 1) snap together 2) done. But that doesn’t look to be the case. I was aware that the figures had to be painted, but I did not read all of the reviews when I decided to buy it, so I didn’t know that for the color you are given stickers to apply to the model. I, as of now, do not care for that. I took a couple of pictures of all the pieces so that people could see what you had to work with, but unfortunately I don’t know how to add them to the images on the product page. If someone reads this review and knows how, feel free to let me know so I can add them. I am going to see what it looks like with the stickers on, but I don’t personally have high hopes. The other reviews say it looks nice.. but I don’t believe the stickers are going to look great on it because the main image looks like it was a painted model. My father has been building models for as long as I can remember and none of them used stickers like the ones included in this set. Even with the included stickers, the main image (and the images on the box) look to have waaaaay better detail. If I turn out to be wrong then I will change my review saying I was an idiot for thinking it would require to be painted to look nice. It’s going to take some time to put it all together definitely. But if you want it to look like a gorgeous model of the Going Merry that is going to do it justice, plan ahead that you are going to probably have to throw some paint on it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful Put the stickers on as you go!, July 25, 2015 By Kian Pritchett – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Bandai Hobby Going Merry Model Ship “One Piece” (Toy) This is an awesome product. I usually hate building plastic models (I do wooden ones myself) but this was very fun and easy to assemble. Put the stickers on as you go! It’s so much easier that way. I recommend a small Flathead screwdriver to help you place the stickers, like the screwdriver in a glasses repair kit. The stickers are actually pretty amazing. I was skeptical, but they really are good quality and add a lot to the model. Touch up with paint afterwords for best results, but it isn’t necessary. If you’ve had experience with models, it doesn’t take but a few hours.My only complaint is the flags, I would just paint them and avoid the stickers. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
