I used to be really into these.

You don't need any special tools, however, a nail clipper and a little fine sand paper, maybe a needle nose pliers and tweezers can be useful.

The instructions are in Japanese unless they're very new. It's no biggie, they're like Ikea directions, the pictures tell the story.

They won't look like the box, you need more after assembly detailing, known as gundam markers, paints, etc. You can however drastically improve the look of your model with a super fine sharpie to fill in panel lines. A little hairspray on a q-tip can be used to clean up over zealous marker application if done before it dries. (hairspray is just soap suspended in alcohol).

In my opinion, the master grade is the best value, they are bigger and in some ways that makes them easier to put together, the detail is significantly better usually, and the master grades generally use the internal framework and internal parts so kitbashing (combining models) is more straight forward, with a little glue and putty that is.

You typically just follow the pictures anyway. Shouldn't be an issue.

Selected pickup at my local stores for dijeh and jegan. Want to buy everything but promised myself only to get universal century kits. Real grades are super nice but takes a lot of time and are super delicate. The high grades at $13 is half the price from the usual price on Amazon and shipping from banzaihobby.

I've done one of the master grade ones before and it wasn't hard to follow the directions. Most of its just pictures and part mnemonics. All of the pieces are labeled well and it was pretty fun to build.

1/144 high grades are about 5-6" tall? 1/100 master grades are about 7-8".

But real grades are so worth it. With the articulation and details.
