The garage kits come in only 1 color, you don't even have the luxury of
parts pre-molded in the closest colors. Original resin kits come in
creamy white, while the lower-quality recasts generally come in brownish
yellow. A lot of your time will be consumed in preparing the parts
(shaving off the runs, puttying the air bubbles, etc.) before you finally
glue them together, prime the kit, and start airbrushing. Not for those
who complain and whine that PG Gundam is an exercise in sadism.

Vinyl kits, on the other hand, has more flexibility in terms of pre-molded
colors, but I have yet to see a vinyl kit that came in more than one color.
So basically you go through almost the same procedures you'd have to put up
with in putting together a resin kit, minus the fill-in-the-bubbles part,
though fitting can be a nightmare if the parts became deformed/warped
somewhere between it left the manufacturer and arriving in your hands.
