  1. Hello Zane, Congratulations on obtaining this kit! The two examples I had were early pours from the first batch. The quality of the resin was excellent with stunning detail, maybe the best I have ever seen in a resin kit. the following may help with your questions: 1. There were no windows or clear parts included in my kits. During a visit with Scott at his studio, he mentioned that he does not include clear windows with his kits because the actual filming studio models never had them due to the problem with light reflection. windows can be added. 2. I believe someone (Adam Johnson?) made an interior for this kit - no idea if one is still available. 3. No recent updates from Moebius on the Aries 1B that I know of. From the preliminary images, it looks to be an excellent kit. I never did build the early kits I obtained from Captain Cardboard, but did manage to get the much larger 1/32 Aries 1B that Scott produced later. You can see the model WIP here: And the completed model here:
  2. Very interesting Pete! Does the Gorilla glue melt the foam? Does it give a good bond when dry? Bill
  3. Very interested to see how this comes out! Bill
  4. Superb - really excellent weathering, looks just right. Regards, Bill
  5. Astounding work! The paint chipping and weathering is truly superb! Regards, Bill
  6. Excellent work Pete! This really came out looking very nice - such wonderful results from odd bits and pieces. Regards, Bill
  7. Thank you for having a look, I do appreciate the kind comments. Bill
  8. Well done! Intriguing what wonderful things can be done with 3D printing. Bill
  9. Hello Pete - Really amazing how you conjure up these little gems from repurposed spare parts and odd bits. Looking forward to seeing this creation with some primer soon. Regards, Bill
  10. Really excellent, especially from such an old kit. Bill
  11. Many thanks! I have waited for this to come out in a styrene kit for decades. Overall it is a very good kit and a pleasure to build. Endless opportunities for super detailing. Regards, Bill
  12. Thank you! Most of this kit comes together very well, just a few small problems. Lighting not too difficult, I ended up using a total of 24 LED's. Unfortunately, much of the effort on detailing the cockpit can't really be seen. Coming up with sturdy display stands and a proper base was one of the bigger challenges. Good luck with your build, please share photos! Regards, Bill
  13. Plenty of room in this kit for lighting. The engine section is ideal for a battery as the top can snap into place to allow access. I went with an external power adapter primarily because I wanted a remote control which will slowly drain a battery even when switched off. Difficult to see the cockpit, but the pod bay is easily viewed, especially with two of the doors open. Thanks, Bill
  14. Yes! Of course, I should have thought the same thing. That is exactly what is happening. Good call!
