Illustrations on this page are stock photos of finished and polished model kits. You may require some cutting, assembling and painting skills to let them look like completed products.

Bandai Hobby Division edited several plastic model kits (プラモデル plamodel in Japanese) dedicated to the famous ships that the Straw Hat crew has ridden during their adventures: the Going Merry and the Thousand Sunny.

They were never made part of an identifiable brand line apart from the obvious One Piece advertising. Upon completion, the non-scale model kits measure around 25-28 cm long and come with unpainted figures of the crew and a display stand.

As any regular model kits, they need a complete hobby toolset to get assembled and be painted:

  • Building tools:
    • Nippers, pliers or side cutters to cut parts from plastic runners.
    • Utility knives to trim the excess plastic, also called nubs or sprues.
    • Sandpaper or files to thin sprues further down in delicate areas.
    • Tweezers to help applying stickers and decals on parts.
    • Modeling putty (optional) to fill gaps, seams and unwanted crevices. It should be sanded down and painted over later, as it dries to a grey color.
    • Scoring tools (optional) to make custom panel lines, mostly useful for robot/sci-fi kits.
    • Glue or plastic cement (not required) to hold parts together. As Bandai produces snap-in parts, they are really of no use here.
  • Painting tools:
    • Mixing containers to mix paint with thinner or mix different paint colors.
    • Syringes to suck and drip thinner or paint.
    • Painting grips to hold parts during painting and drying processes.
    • Brushes or airbrush set following your preferred way of painting.
    • Paint and paint thinner.
    • Primer (optional), base paint to smooth out scratches or neutralize a dark base color.
    • Masking tapes (optional) to guard parts that do not need painting.
    • Panel line markers (optional), an alternative to scoring tools, mostly useful for robot/sci-fi kits.
    • Topcoat (optional) to apply a protective layer to the model and paint. As it adds thickness to parts, it should be applied carefully on joints.

Actually, the model kits are produced in a way that the assembled kits do not really need any painting to be displayed. However, painting still provides a huge visual enhancement compared to the initial bare colors.
