hey guy's
this is a lame question and I think i may have jumped the gun on this
but I aquired the RX78-2 crystal version gundam thih the idea that i was going to do an inner frame paint job and have the clear armor over it
now the question
I also have a rx78-2 version 1.5 on order and i was hopping someone could tell me if they are compatable?
as i do not have the kit in my crazy little fingers yet.
Or did I spent the money on the wrong kit and have to get the not so good first gen RX-78 MG kit
CAll me all the names you want. it's a bad question I know, I just need someone else to tell me what i may already know

thanks
clifton

The ver 1.5 is not compatible with ver 1 (crystal or no crystal).  I hope this answers your question (or confirms your answer).

The Crystal RX-78-2 is based on the MG RX-78-2 1.0 release--and really doesn't have an "inner frame" to speak of (aside from the torso, backpack, and top of the head). As such, there's probably not going to be a real easy way to make the crystal shell fit over the 1.5 RX-78-2. I'm not saying it can't be done, but it would probably require some hefty modification.
