Sweet kit.

Damn how I wish I could afford these things (and had the skill to put them together)

What is your take on this one compares to Volks, WSC?

Based on the looks of these three, Silicon Tribe SR-1 seems to have better detailing. Silicon Tribe proportion isn't as good as Volks SR-1 which is the best of the three. I just do not like the overall appearance of WSC SR-1. The upper body of WSC SR-1 is too big and bulky compared to the slim design of an Engage SR-1. I also did not like the way the waist armor was shaped...

Although proportion and details are supposedly just as important as the other, the recent Gundam PG GP01fb convinced me that if the proportion is off, I have no interest regardless of the details.

For e.g., the internal details of the GP01fb is very good, the exterior is okay, I would have go w/ the internal details and buy that kit, but in the end, the proportion is too far off.

So I value proportion more important than details. In particular, exterior details can be added if you have the guts.

Same deal w/ FSS, if the proportion is totally off, screw it. So in this case, it depends on how far off the proportion is.

For e.g., the WSC empress, that's OFF.

WSC Empress actually look ok in the manga( At least to me ). It could be much worst if Ikushima of WSC actually did sculpt this kit himself but it wasn't him.
