    Hi guys.Here's what I've been working on lately.Still some touch up to do like cables and other minor things. Apart from that it's about done.I can tell you right up that this is a very demandind kit and definately not for the beginner.It really challenged me way deep.Nonetheless it was a fun project to do.Enjoy the pics

    Great work on a VERY difficult kit Steve!!!!! I remember doing this one and as if the punishment wasnt enough? I bought another one! How'd you like all those parts and trying to get them together? LOL :D How many times were you tempted to quit? I see you painted Sean in the correct colored suit, it wasn't until I was nearly done that I saw it was wrong and left it grey anyway. Speaking of which....Ray? I hope it made the trip back from Boston in one piece :(.

    Great work Steve,

    Very nice piece Stephen, like the weathering and paint chips on the metal parts, the figures painted up very well, who makes the kit please?

    Cheers

    Always liked the look of this kit after reading `sculpting and converting figures` by andreas press which covers the converting of the figures from DAK soldiers into the movie figures for this model release.
    Exellent job Stephen and even though it was a difficult build looks like you cracked it mate to achieve a great looking kit, as said by others the leather work is exellent.

    Guys,thanks for your positive feedback. As already said this is by Andrea in 54mm.I don't want to discourage anybody from taking on this piece but If you do be prepared for a one hell of a ride.I will not review the kit here but it will test all your abilities.

    P.S. Jim, yes your piece did make the journey from Boston OK. Ray still has it I believe :):)
