Psychodellic man! I'm sorry, this is the first time I've even seen the kit, but after staring at the box for a minute it brought back this feeling from several years ago... ;)

I just hope my skills are good enough to pull off the tri-tone paint job let alone painting the captain and the nowhere man in the portholes,hatches or whatever they are called

Interesting kit. I'm going to watch this build. Please show sprue shots and kit contents and you build progress as you go along. If this is possible

I will take sprue shots later tonight when I get back home. I will surely keep y'all posted and probably ask lots of questions.

Actually , in the photos the quality looks much better than I expected !
I think the little flowery things are suppossed to be little flowery things . Or some foreign object floating in the pool !

In the original issue, there were four clear 3-d panels, each with the impression of one of the Beatles. These were even deep enough to act as molds for plaster or whatever medium. Also included in the kit were four color pics of the guys that fit into the frames. The flowery things are the "feet" for the panels so they could be stood up. Sort of like a room divider configuration.

i'm sure this is the weirdest subject ever done by a model making company. I'm sure with a bit of scratchbuilding and kitbashing you could make an interesting helicopter out of it.
