        No, it's definitely not Gundam MG in quality, since the 1S version
came as off-white/ white-battleship grey.. how _DO_ I describe that wierd
grey?? anyway, it comes in grey without any off the nice System Injection
that the old HGs come with. (The 1J came either as Red (Miriya) or (of
course) Blue main bodies, and the 1A with, all of things, brown! =). it
needed A LOT of work, gluing and painting both, to put together, and I'm not
altogether too happy with that kit. But of all the Macross kits I have
available to me, that's about the MG of the lot. =)

        As for the Valk II, it's a nice snap kit that failed in terms of
detail, and it still needed a screwdriver. =)
