No pain, no gain. You could go out and find your own alternative beads to
make the whip and cables (which saves you the trouble of sanding), or you
can use the one-piece/fixed-pose whip and cables from the old kit. Man, I
love the proportions of the old 1/100 kit. The MG design just doesn't
look sexy enough.

Hmm, that's not good. Where's my glue?

That, I agree... if they tried t hide the entire heat blade in the shield
like the Gouf Custom then the shield might have been sculpted bigger.

Man, that's way cheap. Makes all these 20% and 30% off prices you see in
the ad pages of Hobby Japan expensive by comparison.
