I bought a couple of the 1/220 resin kits - The Gundam Alex & the Sazabi
( for pictures). Even though these kits are
advertised as having polycaps and full-action, many of the joints have to be
glued in place. It's was impossible to do some of the Gundam Alex joints
(the elbow, the wrist) in a way that would allow mobility. These joints
also loved to pop out of place until I started to liberaly apply super glue.
The joints are just too small in this scale - and the ball and socket parts
are too large.
