I suspect those are also made from old Imai molds which Bandai bought.
Since they were non-transforming kits, they didn't have to make compromises
for transformation purposes and obviously should look better.

The closest thing is the Valkyrie II from Macross II. It's a snap-
together kit, but quality is still not as good as the Gundam kits that
came out around the same time period.
