My HGUC Hyaku-Shiki measures up just fine when compared to my other HG kits.

The goal is to overcome the deliberate nature of the process.

Subject: [gundam] HGUC and proportions

I noticed this when I stood the old GP03 kit next to the HGUC GP01
the Zaku FZ next to the HG 08MST Zaku II. Apparently, GP01 is 18.5
tall, and GP03 is 18 meters tall. Then why is the GP03 kit about a
taller than the HGUC GP01? Same thing goes for the Zaku II and FZ.
according to the manual, is about a meter shorter than the Zaku II,
they're just about the exact same height. Also with HGUC Zak III and
Sazabi. Sazabi is a head taller though it should be about the same
height. Obviously, one or the other has bad proportions. HGs are
basically scaled down MGs, so proportions should be fine... but I
felt that HG kits seemed kinda small... Am I alone and just noticing
things that aren't there, or does anyone else notice this or think
HGs seem a bit small?
