  Well, basically all those cluster of 1/100 kits that came out on the
heels of the F-91 series are all well-jointed, molded in colors (in some
cases with System Injection!) come with clear green eyepieces and
sabers/shields, and are of pretty good quality model-wise (certainly
better than alot of the stuff that came out after them). They are of
near-HG quality for _their_ time, which means HG in our current time.

  Their biggest problem wsa somewhat weak joints in places, occassionally
disproportionate limbs, a very unoriginal and over-cluttered design style,
and in general just too many thruster nozzles and fiddly bits. They do,
however, make great kits for scratchbuilding (which is what I use them
for). You should see my Vigna Zirah Cannon!
