I've got the green chrome MG Zaku and LOVE him! The snip spots on the parts
are a problem, but don't really bother me, so I didn't do anything else to
mine.
As far as the Wing kits go... yes they seem shorter than the MG 100s. I
guess it must be the scale of the Gundams themselves, or... possibly the
fact that HGs are smaller than MGs?
