-The Honeycomb Conversion Kit is an upgrade for the High Grade 1/144 GN Archer, designed to make the kit appear like a robotic bee. Honeycomb includes an entirely new articulated wing set, a new abdomen piece, two new heads, new knee and wrist parts and two guns!
-The Honeycomb Conversion Kit is designed to 'snap' onto the GN Archer, using existing pegs. However, some parts of GN Archer do need to be removed by cutting (such as the fins on the Archer's knees), and glue is recommended to be used for extra support.
-The kit is designed to be 3D printed on Shapeways, and its sprues are designed with that in mind. The parts are separated into 2 sprues (A and B). The A sprue is for large parts, recommended to be printed in WSF, while the B sprue is used for smaller parts (like the heads), recommended to be printed in Frosted Detail (or Frosted Ultra Detail).
-About the Honeycomb Conversion Kit: This kit is designed to be used with the High Grade 1/144 GN Archer Gundam model kit. It requires that the GN Archer kit be partially built and modified (such that the original model cannot be recovered once Honeycomb is built onto it). Honeycomb is an extensive modification of the GN Archer model kit, and it is recommended for experienced model builders. The parts of Honeycomb have been designed to work with GN Archer such that existing pegs can be used, however pieces may need to be cut from the GN Archer model kit in some instances (such as the fins on the knees of GN Archer, which must be removed before the Honeycomb knee parts can be attached. Glue is required for some parts and is recommended to make the kit more stable. Moving parts, such as the wings, have been designed to be assembled without glue. The Honeycomb Conversion Kit does require paint (along with the GN Archer).
-Note: The Honeycomb Conversion Kit was created from scratch. Every section of the model was drawn for Honeycomb; no 3D models were obtained from any source. Every model in the Honeycomb Conversion Kit is custom made specifically for this kit. Honeycomb is sold at ZERO MARKUP (I make no money off this kit; the cost is what Shapeways charges for printing it).
