Oh, no, because you can rely on Jon, both to be prepared to send you 
the bits you want, and to actually send you the stuff! The Evil Empire 
has trouble finding its own backside in its Official Catalogue(tm), and 
then usually won't send you the crap it supposedly sells because... oh, 
I dunno; from some of the excuses I've been given over the years, I 
think it's because the Trollz get PMS on a weekly basis.

GZG, though, seem to actually want to do business with their customers, 
and I have proof in the form of several "unofficial" kitbashed models 
ranging from BCs to a uberSDN, most of which were assembled from loose 
parts supplied at my request. There's no comparison, really.
