I bought this back in 2010 and during the past three days I came to realize why I haven't built the kit before now. It's not that easy to build and the instructions suck worst than any Dragon instructions i've ever tried to follow.

The upper hull is just sitting on there for painting the interior works later.
I also installed the bed platform sides up because there are so many others build with them down.

Beautiful day here in the Ozarks

I don't know how you guys make them look so clean, I always end up with shiny bits from where the glue has gone too far. :blush:

Gary I think it's a combination of present day soft plastic,placing the glue inside where possible where it won't be seen and being light handed with the glue.

IMHO

Looks great. The camouflage really looks the part. We make it art, they got it on any old how. Nice work indeed

Hey there Tony, she looks awesome.
Any kit you make looks like art when done, great job on the squiggly lines.

Very nice finish to it. I wonder how it handled the recoil sitting up so high?
