Pictures of a Sol vinyl kit nearly completed. This build up was started six years ago, and, after a six year break, I'm finally finishing it!

Vinyl kits were a new thing for me but, after building a couple now, they have definite pro's and cons.
PROS: Much cheaper than resin or metal - a kit this big would cost a fortune.
Crisp detail and easy to cut up - you just need a sharp knife. Few 'undercuts' though.
Easy to manipulate - you just warm them with hot water or a blow dryer; they're quite bendy and stretchy

CONS: The hollow body should be filled for strength. I use foam (not the expanding kind!) but watch out for overflows! Some people use plaster or even screwed up paper.
You need to fill a section for base pinning.
Look out for accessories - should be metal or good quality resin - and avoid cheap knock-offs.
