I built an original release of the kit way back when, I was never really satisfied with my work on it. I'd love to try again, and apply techniques I've learned since then. First thing, that chrome needs to come off, it's not at all accurate to the filming vehicle. Shades of dark metals would work much better, I think.
I'm glad to see stuff being made to bring in a new generation of modelers. My only problem with these is the body shapes being somewhat deformed, like caricatures of the real thing instead of generally accurate miniatures.
I find myself working on multiple projects lately, but not more than three at one time. Sometimes I get bored with a project and need to switch up, sometimes I get frustrated and need to switch up, sometimes I may be working within a particular theme or color scheme, sometimes I may work on multiple items with the intent to parts-swap and kitbash. On a couple of occasions I have started additional projects in the hopes of having more finished builds to bring to a show. I build models from multiple genres, sometimes that will lead me to start an additional project while one is already going.
I really like what you've done with the model, Virgil. Very nice weathering work, as usual. What are your thought on the kit itself? I've had ideas of getting one to make into a 1/35 steampunk or dieselpunk mecha.
That might be deliberate for the show. Within the narrative, they've both been through some hard stuff, especially if the events of the second feature film remain part of the official timeline. I'm glad to see the X-Files coming back, too. I'm a big science fiction fan, but I think the show had an appeal that went way beyond that genre. I also think it was a major inspiration for later sci-fi properties that have found their niche beyond the SF field.
