What size thrusters would I need for say, a 1/100 MG Mk.II AEUG?

Any other suggestions as far as option parts go for beginner-level modifications for Master Grade kits?

Thanks for your help!  I went ahead and bought some G Thrusters.  If I am looking for these parts on other sites, what dimensions should I be looking for?  Should I use small, medium, or large, or will they all work on master grade kits?

I hope these aren't stupid questions.

Just check the thrusters' outer diameters and see if it works for what you need.
It ranges from 9 to 12mm:

Those are mostly designed for MG I'd say but it depends on what you're looking to do, really.

I had the same issue with the thrusters, but mechaskunk has all the measurements, and sometimes going a bit bigger isn't bad. I needed 6mm thrusters but settled for 9mm because they looked better, and I'm more than happy with the results. and IMO, the Mk.II looks good with the narrow thrusters.
