        I think I did.. That's a difficult part to replace -- are you
ordering parts or just going to find something to put there?

        So.. the external head is actually a cover, and the mono-eye is the
one moveable?

        I don't quite like that arrangement -- I prefer to have a movable
head to play with, which is why I prefer the Zaku over a Dom. I'll love to
have a Rick Dom II, which does have a seperate head..

        "Supposed" to be -- I don't think I got a bum part, both polycap and
elbow joint looks clean. I have this feeling, since you had that problem
with your right arm too, that the right elbow joint might just be a
millimeter off.

        Right, which was why I didn't really like the old Cross-eye. Grew on
me thought. =)

        I don't really think very much of the original marine MS -- great
ideas, but exterior designs are a bit off. Hygogs and Zugock-Es are my
favourite marine designs, but those are not original designs.

        Hopefully, the MG line won't devolved into a Gundam-only line. That
will be quite sad..

Excellence I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
