>sorry for getting [OT], how is the 1/72 worse than the 1/100? i got a box
>of each and haven't started on them yet.

The 1/72 scale kit was originally molded by Imai in the early 80s. Bandai
bought the mold from Imai later, when Imai went out of business. The 1/100
scale kits were molded by Bandai either in the mid 80s or late 80s, and
although I do not have the kit with me right now, it was eitehr a snap-on kit
or at least had the male and female sections on the parts so as to facilitate
fitting the parts together with glue, whereas if you look at the feet/fighter
exhaust on the 1/72 scale kit, no such thing exists and you might as well
try to fit resin parts together, since you are working with two flat
surfaces.

While we're being OT, here's another shameless eBay plug that you may
find interesting, since it's the latest toy from Bandai and it is mecha...
