I wrapped up a few things for Wonderfest early and had some extra time and building energy. This project has been on my mind for a while now so it was time to dig in. Not only will I have it done for WF, I’ll be entering it in 2 other online contests as well!!
In this first stage all the parts were scrubbed and then carefully trimmed and sanded to remove and little bits and pieces of stuff. Thankfully there was a minimum of cleanup (but there are just sooo many parts!) This is a beautifully mastered and produced kit…really makes me feel like a studio modeler!! Some extra additions to my build include a cockpit sourced from the AMT TIE Fighter kit, a scratch built “behind the glass” panel thing, a Polar Lights dome stand and “full” compliment of lights.
