If you have all the kits from The 08th MS Team, you will notice that
Bandai changed the polycaps after the Zaku II kit, for obvious reasons.
The GM was the 2nd kit from the series, so it suffers from lame-polycap-
tis.

Well, when I mentioned that the 0080 kits were basically HG kits, someone
disagreed here and said they weren't even close. Care to defend that
position now?

What an unpleasant image. :) It is always a good idea to prime kits,
especially if the part's color is not close to light/white color enough.
As for what brand of paint to use, go with Gunze Sangyo. You can't go
wrong with them because Bandai owns it and releases their Gundam Markers
through this company.

Get upset with her faeries collection and see if she sees the error of her
ways. :)
