  Good point! you know, I kinda remember the orange hatch being either
shiny or translucent or something.

  The sight I painted green with grey barrels around the outside... the
barrels themselves are grey, but the _inside_ of the barrels are orange
and with some gold lining on the inside.

  Hmm... I kinda like bright yellow or gold internal-gun-barrels for some
reason. Especially in bazzokas and stuff like that!

  Yeah, you do!
  I have the green I want to use for the head, and I'll cut some plastic
for the visor, but I'm still debating what glue to use that won't whiten
the plastic itself and still stick smoothly... then, after I got my MG GM,
I started thinking about constructing a detailed 'backplate' for the GM's
visor, no idea yet on how I'm going to do that! In the meantime I've been
making an EZ8 versionof my Gundam Mk.II!
