hmmm...I'd call it muscular, but not as much as the EX-S ^_^

the G-3 had an unfinished painting process, hence the primer? that's a good one!
personally, I haven't used primer for any of my kits, and maybe that explains why the paint on my 1/144 Hygog was flaking off...

>Full armor Hyaku shiki, very tacky. and its gold!

imagine if that was made of the gold Char had and mixed with whatever Anaheim used (was it Gundanium alloy)? LOL!

the color scheme a certain pilot uses for his unit (MS/Valkyrie/whatever) is significant in the sense that it also serves as a psychological weapon, wherein they use it for enemy units to recognize that this certain pilot is here and if he/she is an ace pilot, then they'd better beware. it sure is embarassing to have a shiny gold-colored unit sneak up on you, although if that's freaking fast then you'd better have one helluva skill to fend it off and survive alive, or somewhere near alive.
