really? dang! and I was planning to get the 1/100 W0C (no money for the

true, I know someone from my local mecha mailing list in the Philippines who
did a Bendi Hydra Gundam (from G-Unit). he did a pretty good job. but it's
like doing a lot of modifications just to get a kit right, to get it the way
