yeah I've been trying to decide what would look good on a zeon squad... I was
thinking maybe black and a metallic violet or ruby red. Hey, I'm gonna need
something to do this summer. Besides, I think that a little MG squad would be

heheh. You a bit sore about the Turn-A gundam, huh? Actually, I like to paint my
gundams how they look in artwork - I think for me personally its because there's
only ONE gundam in each series (okay, sort of - there were three prototypes in
0083, and Z gundam had those few MK IIs, but you get my point) so there were
never really any personality quirks added to them. But the zeon suits, the
possibilties are endless, and I'm sure that there are a couple of really good GM
paint jobs out there, too. (like a camo-GM, that'd be cool, or one for night ops
and stuff... maybe even snowflauge on the GM-arctic units).

heheh, thanks. I think I'm gonna order both gelgoogs but I'm not sure which
Zaku, yet. as for the PG kit? well, if I had the time to build it, money to pay
for it, dedication to keep working on it, or space to keep it, maybe I'd get it.
For now I can deal with 12-inch tall MG kits (or however tall they are,
