#04 Red Force One Piece Grand Ship Collection

$22.99

The Red Force is the flagship of the mysterious Red Hair Pirates and their chief, Shanks! Much like the crew who inhabits the Red Force, the ship makes infrequent yet impactful appearances in One Piece, and many aspects of this ship are still unexplained years after its introduction to the story. Shanks and the Red Hair Pirates likely acquired the Red Force in the ten years between meeting Luffy in Foosha Village and Shank’s meeting with Whitebeard, as his crew sailed a smaller unnamed vessel while in the East Blue. The Red Force also appears in the upcoming One Piece Film: Red, which features some exciting moments with the Shanks and his crew. In fact, Bandai has casually announced new Grand Ship Collection renditions of the Thousand Sunny and the Red Force, featuring commemorative red coloring! Not satisfied with seeing the Red Force once every few years when Oda decides to draw it? Add the Grand Ship Collection Red Force to your fleet and immortalize this iconic pirate ship on your shelf!

Included alongside the Red Force for accessories:

  • Display Base
  • Water Effect Part


Notable Attributes:

The Red Force 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 Red Force 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 Red Force 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:

4 Runners total (A, B, C, D)
Total Piece Count – 84 Pieces
Foil + Marking Stickers
Materials – PS|

Description

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 Red Force 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.
