  Well, the color is an easy thing to change. I got two Goufs and am
saving one until I decide what colors to make it! Actually, the light-blue
is remarkably easy to get used to, I have to say I think it looks a bit
better than the usual dark blue color...

  Oh, I like the grappling-line a bit better, but it should be easy to
create an old style whip. Here's a simple way:
        1. Get a plain thick copper wire and carve little 'segments' into
        the thick rubber insulation and paint, OR
        2. Use a thinner copper wire and get a tube of styrene plastic and
        cut it up to make segments which you 'thread' along the wire!

  Well, the flight type is the same deal, the 0080 Zaku is a GREAT kit for
mods, as is the Jagd Doga kit from CCA, etc...
