A kit, never say never but I worry the quality is hobby guy and not professional (meeting expectations might be hard me).
I have retooled the inner wing parts today; we will see how that goes.

Thanks for the positive interest.

They look like nice clean parts for that wing pattern
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

A mate of mine has printed the files at 200% - 1/36th.
They don't look to shabby; I haven't seen them yet. A bit of fun but too much clean up for me though.

I haven't been around for a while and the summer months let me work on the big Eagle (Space 1999).
I went to Telford IPMS..... Ended up with a couple of 1/72 models but have picked up the Bomber to do a bit.

I have managed to do a bit on the bomber. Going to try and get this finished now.
It will be / is captured and now in rebel hands (dirty, grim, well used with yellow flash).

Thanks
I am still after some decals. I ordered some but never came.
Might have to buy a 1/72 x wing or something to get a decal sheet.
