        I like the Zaku mostly because it *looks* the part of a military
machine. The GM (especially 0080 versions) are fine, but I still get fits
(sometimes) when I consider the RX-78 Gundam as a military machine.

        Helldiver. The Brocken is pretty okay too, so long you paint it in
camo. I still like the Type Zero most. =)

        Why stop here? Swap both shoulders into spiked shoulders. Use putty
to shape curving horns on the center spike. Find some cabling to build a
electro-rope. Voila! A MG prototype Gouf! (^_^)

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