  Oh yes, that goes without saying... the original WG kits looked _much_
nicer and more 'regal' with gold instead of yellow details, and silver
too! The designs just seemed to demand that kind of treatment, unlike the
EW designs that just look better with an understated color scheme. The GXX
I probably wouldn't have given gold vents if it wasn't for the fact that
it had so much other gold parts anyway... I also gave it a coppery-gold
forehead fin and that did wonders for making it look more 'respectible'.
