I stumbled across this looking for something else in the attic and thought it would be perfect to finish off over me holibags. One wet Irish weekend and I've got this far with a toe nail clippers, craft knife and a nail file...
A little bit of fun in the sun today - i.e. just call me Lobster
Progress is pretty slow with this, in part due to the absence of meaningful tools but be aware also because of issues with the kit: . Fitting is poor in places and will necessitate filler - which, surprise, surprise... I don't have any! The plastic itself is also soft so it doesn't take much to take lumps out of the parts which then necessitate -you guessed it- filler! Some of the sprue gates are a bit on the big side, making removal and clean up a bit awkward and down-right impossible for the smaller bits, particularly for the rear-hull plate. Flash present in quite a few places- more than you'd expect for a new kit. I bought this soon after it was released so no excuse for this really.
Ok- but I still might try it for a larf and see what happens
As this will have to travel back with me in a cardboard box, (unless I can find a source of reasonably priced plastic boxes) the more delicate stuff-mirrors,aerials , turret "handles" will need to stay orf for their safety and my sanity. Also,current tool kit might be a tad heavy handed for such delicates
