The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.

Had this kit for a long time and tried twice to get it done and it's gotten the better of me both times. I think I just psyched myself out trying to do it perfectly rather than just trying to do it well.


I got a bunch of the prep work done. I'll be adding some Brassin Snake Eyes as this is the kit without armament.


Speedbrake glued down


Other parts pretty much cleaned up. Will have a look at them again and then get them into primer


I need to make up the resin burner cans still. This is what stopped me last time.


Pity I stopped really as this was one of the better cockpit jobs I have done. PE helped of course.


Instructions and other parts still on the sprue. Im hoping to have a it mostly done before xmas. It may be wishful thinking at my speed but it's a goal.

Nice one Kane, it's great to see so many people having a go at clearing the SoD.
Start with the resin burner cans, get that hump out of the way and the rest will follow.

So I'm stuck on the resin engines. I didn't quite understand the Aires instructions in regards to how the actuators went on and how much I should cut of the resin block. Now i have lost the instructions and can't seem to find any online. Hopefully there are spares as I have lost one and one I think is cut wrong.
