        That's up to you, but it will look better with the panel lines inked.

        It's very easy to put together. It's snap-together, with about 50
parts, and a joy to build. It's also quite sturdy, surprising in this age of
brittle plamod..

>3)Is the Space type(GS) kit basically the same mold?

        Similar, but not quite. the GS has 51 parts, a different gun, a
different backpack, and a different colour. But if you paint them the same,
I won't be able to tell the differences aside from the gun and backpacks.

>4)Do you have to be delicate with the translucent visor? When I assemble
Gundam kits, I've found the head the hardest part, since it's often the
smallest part.

        The visor is neat -- you no longer see these with newer Gundam kits.
It's quite a solid block, so breakage isn't likely. It's quite simple to put
together, so it should be all right.

I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection.
Excellence I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
