Hmmm...That's weird. I have no complaints about the EW/GW kits I've
assembled in the past. Perhaps Bandai Has changed the Plastic that they
use? I find that my EW kits held up well in assembly and in poseability.

But I have noticed some marked differences. I have a first-issue 08thMS
RX79G/Zaku set,l and a newer issue...and the plastic seemed different,
honestly, and the mold lines and distortions, as well as fracture lines were
plainly seen. I hope this isn't a sign of downgraded quality control.
