Oh, blah. I try to wiggle it around a byt so they seat correctly, but
especially in the legs it's jammed enough to seperate the two halves a
bit. I'll have to superglue 'em,

Hell no, that wasn't my argument to start with. The 0080 GM was one of
the first kits I bought and it sorta raised the bar on my expectations
for 1/144, I guess. I've still got to get around to getting more... More
GMs! Mwahahah! But I was buying the 08th GM expecting it to be *better*
than the 0080...

Chien mentioned that, I really should look into getting some.
