        Uhmmm...though I like the kits, I have to admit that they look horrible
without a paint job, specially the gp02, which has to rank up there as one
of the most horrible from the box kits ever made....the gp03 is the best,
but it still needs a lot of work...the normal arms are cast in white
plastic, yes, but the extending arms are in GRAY! I heard of stupid, but....

        The o8 kits are light years from the 0083 kits....
