One thing you want to watch out for the MG Mk-II is the clips for the
beam rifle and the bazooka magazines. The manual's graphical representation
was rather poor and does not represent the actual part very well. Basically
the clip is made of 2 parts: the actual clip and the holder that keeps it
within the gun/magazine. On one side of the clip you will see 3 carved out
lines and inside one end of the holder there is a very slight extension
(which falls nicely into one of the three slots). You must match these two
sides together so the clip will lock into place instead of sliding around.

Oh yeah... for people who think the Zaku II's tubes sucked, check out the
"cable" tube you get with the MG Mk-II... you gotta measure it and cut it,
they give you just a bit more so if you screw up more than twice it's over,
and the tube's fabric tends to extend so they do not snug well to the parts.
