It's not that easy for newbies to build a piston.

I hope you like Rick-Diaz's tiny pistols.

yeah, that's the big problem with all models, no many of them can hold their
weapons with both hands. For those who played with the Chogokin figures,
you would know how flexible a MS could be.

It's not easy because a lot of MS have huge shields.

>5. easy-to-paint multi-part heads
>6. wet and dry decals, tons of decals, less stickers
>7. transparent eyes, movable monoeyes, places to mount LEDs, transparent

Almost all models made from 1997 on have transparent sabres.

>8. articulate hands or at least more expressive fixed pose hands
The recent HGUC models have great molded hands, like the Gelgoog Marine,
Quebley, and Dom Tropen.

>9. pilots, support crews, support vehicles and cranes
>10. weapon racks/display stands, also display stands for flying/space

I believe that Hasagawa makes very good modeling accessoris like crew sets
and support vehicles. I got the US Airforce Crew set for 400 yen, and they
are a great addition to my PG Zeta gundam.
