Well I have only build 0080 and F91 kits before I built my MG RGM-79
it was cool, and looks ok. I bought myself a sprue cutter during the build
phase of the MG, and now have been working on my PG RX-78-2 model
for a few months now (2 hours every friday during Farscape and Lexx) not
a continuous effort. The PG to me is just a big MG with more parts. Then
again my modelling got tons better with the sprue cutter insteal of nail
that I was using.(and lots of sanding afterward) now I don't really have to
sand to have a good looking kit.

I haven't built any of my HG 08th MS team kits so I don't know how much
different there is between the HG kit, and the ones I've built, but the
seem easier to me because a lot more thought went into them. I'm also a part
time mechanic, trained mechanical draftsman, and full time computer geek, so
I may just be assuming too much skill with handtools to be a part of the
geek lifestyle.
