it has been mentioned before, that certainyl the original Gundam head at least
was modelled after a samurai helmet, the face, I don't know, maybe Japanese war
paint if they ever used that stuff. I never thought f this, but maybe it is
modelled after the makeup in tradition Japanese theatre.

Maybe I am rambling a bit too much, maybe I feel guilty that I am writing sweet
F all for my thesis, but I let my creativity roll when writing to theis ML. I
