  1. Thanks for the reply. I'm in the final stages of the deagostini r2-d2 build and fancy the BIG falcon next in affordable bite size chunks, instead of a mortgage of a price tag. Love colour and v restrained weathering on yours...best I've ever seen.
  2. Looks fantastic. I'm considering getting one of these...would you say it's worth it??
  3. Can I ask you Kallisti. Did you have to drill out the manoeuvring thrusters or are they already hollowed out??
  4. Excellent result... Two of these arrived by post the day of going on my holliday and now can't wait to get back n get started.
  5. Cheers Blastvader. So many likes...thankyou oileanach. It's deffo a werid looking mecha...so many different influences go into its design, but it kinda works...i think. I've just moved house and it's still in storage at the mo. I'm hoping it's survived the move...Can't wait to get back to it. Cheers Charlie.
  6. All things being well n good this should be back on the bench v soon...
  7. Thankyou John. I'm right handed and it's my right wrist and elbow that I've fractured. It's sooo strange trying to do things with my left hand, even the most mundane of tasks, not wanting to lower the tone...but try wiping your bottom with your other hand!! It just feels wrong!! I was really enjoying the kit too, and felt I was making good progress. Then this. But we'll get there. Cheers Charlie.
  8. Haha like it!! Is he having an oil change?? Cheers Charlie.
  9. Thankyou Hunter. I'll be in plaster for a month then may need some physio after that. Cheers Charlie.
  10. Yes I was there, it was a good day and a good turn out and standard of work. Yes I know the tyneside club, been a few times as I lived in Gosforth for a few years. Thankyou for the best wishes regarding my arm. Yes, my mistake. The Sun Inn is in Morpeth your rite. Cheers Charlie.
  11. Hi Paul. Haha yeah something like that. No I did it at work. So I'm in plaster for a month. And rattling with all the pain killers I'm taking. I'm a member of the Washington model club, but must admit I haven't been for a while due to work and family commitments. And I did kind of loose my modeling mojo for a while. Are there any clubs up your way?? Did you go to the show at North tyneside leisure centre this year?? Only been to Blyth a few times had a nice meal in the Sun Inn. Do you know it?? Cheers Charlie
  12. Hi, Vader. Thankyou, glad your enjoying the build. Tho its on hold at the moment, as on Friday the bloody 13th, I fractured my wrist and radial head in my elbow. Ouch!! I'm from sunny south shields. Tho not to sunny today. Cheers Charlie.
  13. Lurrrve this John!! The pose really puts the action into action figure action. First one I've seen with the joints filled. ..makes for a more coherent look. V well done...I'll have a dozen. Cheers Charlie.
  14. Lurrrve this mike. Just the rite amount of tatooine-y weathering. I'd personally like to see a TIE fighter pilot in this scale. Cheers, Charlie.
