Hm.... good point but the only other person on the design list for this is
Kunio Okowara and his designs can be told apart so easily,Waddo and eagle are
some of Okowara's designs. Syd makes most of his MS's in simple Geometrical
shapes and many useless panel lines as opposed to Okowara's designs which are
more Gundam-ish, he still keeps the crotch plates and the corners aren't as
"angular" as Syd Mead.So Kunio design catch my eye more !!
