Hmm ... ya know what, you're right. I just fired up photoshop'd and made the
changes you suggested (basically, removing all red except for the Gundam
chin) along with the few extra spots of blue and it makes a huge difference.
It removes some of the flash and the design is vastly improved as a result.
There are a few other changes I want to play around with, but it's pretty
late and I don't have time to work on it now. I'm gonna grab a better
picture than the one I was working from and see if I can come up a clean
version of your GP05/pre-f91 take on the Wing Zero.
