I purchased this kit a couple of weeks ago. I have been in a non-building slump for too long. This is the kit that got me building again. Work started with assembling the frame. I glued the attachment points, moving from rearmost to the front. All in all, the frame members lined up well on the two halves. Please excuse the putty, which is yet to be sanded. After watching HPI Guy's build up on YouTube, I really wanted to do something about the seams/gaps between the panel components. So, I decided to assemble all of the pieces and putty the seems. Again, this needs sanding. There are two slots on either side of the firewall where vertical portions of the frame show through. Again, this did not appeal to me so I tried filling these slots in with strip styrene, to get a solid firewall appearance. Looking at it now, I will more than likely remove this piece and create a solid new piece from sheet styrene.
I'm still waiting for my income tax return, and waiting and waiting... So I picked up a side project for fun and to fill the time! It's a little 1/32 scale 1978 Star Wars R2 D2 van kit, missing many part's but i though it would go great with the Moonscope thing. I was also Inspired by my good friends comic and children's costume play armor, on this build, Moonscope parts on this van with a tie fighter window! In a world of space exploration. it seems to fit well. Great timing as Snapz releases this weekend. Check them out: www.facebook.com/SNAPZLLC?fref=photo
