Oh belive me, I wouldn't buy one of these kits instead of a real one.
But I'm going to do a major kitbash where you wouldn't be able to recognize
the original kit anyway. And the way I figure it, if I botch the job on a
kit that cost me half as much, it won't hurt as much.
I don't know about you, but getting 1/144 EW kits in Ottawa costs about $30
if you can find them.

DO NOT BUY. I bought one -- a gundam Hydra, just to replace the head gear
which was missing, and damn...IT IS HORRIBLE. Just don't buy it, trust me.

If I wanted to rage against the dying of the light, I would have brought a
flashlight.
