Aha... Welcome to the world of Gunpla!

Don't worry about trying to fix it... Broken V-fins are a fact of life in
Gunpla, albeit an annoying one. Eventually, with experience, you'll learn
what to do to help prevent this from happening. However, a few tips for
future kits.

1) Never try to turn or otherwise get the v-fin off of the sprue without
cutting it. This is almost certain to break it.

2) Be careful around your kit. Any fall can cause the Gundam to land on
it's head and break the thing...
