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

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.

Here are the partsIMG108.jpg the captain btw I have to watch the movie because I think the colors of his uniform are wrong in the instructions IMG101-1.jpg I took a dozen pix and couldn't get a clear one of this little guy IMG103-1.jpg I don't see where these flowery things go in the instructions do you?

IMG104-1.jpgIMG105-1.jpgIMG106-1.jpg scopes and decalsIMG107-1.jpg sadly as I look at it it's a poor quality kit but I'm going to do my best to honor one of my favorite movies dum dum dum dum heeeey bulldog yaaaaaa I hear it already! ;)

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 !

I did some research and the colors AMT suggest are way off 220px-Yellow_submarine_songtrack.jpg probably to escape licensing or something

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.
