>zaku? what's the lowdown on these 'model academy' kits?

The Academy kits are, like you said, knock-off kits made in Korea. They
sometimes engage in creative packaging, like the F-90 A/S/D kit was broken
down into 2 or 3 kits, so you have to buy a seperate kit for a different
set of optional modules.

The kit you bought was from ZZ Gundam, and even the Bandai originals
required major painting and gluing, because the technology is over 10 years
old. It was a few years before snap-on became standard on Gundam kits.
