it is very unfair to compare 1/144 kits to 1/100 considering that 1/144 kits
cannot possibly have the same level of detail as a 1/100 kit (well, i guess
you could, but they just don't make it that way). most 1/144 kits usually
have alot of proportion problems (i.e. Wing Zero 1/144's legs are AWFUL, the
body size, v fin size etc)... 1/100 kits and MG kits usually attempt to
create that "proportionally good looking from any angle" feeling + more
gimmicks. however, if you're on a budget or enjoy taking kits apart and
modifying, 1/144 is the way to go...

It is way easier to build then a Master Grade. The worst part IMHO was the
transformation. It was SO flimsy, it made the MG Zeta look strong by
comparison.
