Hi Everybody! Will be taking a short break from My Trumpeter 1/200 hood build because............................... I had / suffered / experienced () a major Birthday last week, and My Darling Wife Completely surprised Me with UNCL's latest kit , an 18" long Fireball XL5 Resin Kit! For those of You that hav'nt experienced said Major Birthdays , a little background info:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fireball_XL5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ifS2nP53Zs OK , let's have a look:- Kit arrives in a standard cardboard box with a coloured end-label:- A layout of the major parts (Note colour demarcation lines are scribed into parts - very useful!) :- Two clear canopies plus two of each alternate Astrodomes supplied plus resin framework for Astrodomes:- A bag of parts:- Alternative fins for Fireball Junior:- Very little clean-up required on parts! A single printed colour instruction sheet with a CD containing the same sheet as a .pdf file :- A fret of photoetch parts for the cockpit framing and cover strips for canopy joints :- Clearly printed Decals, white ones do not show up well on photos :- Sorry, duplicated photo below, cannot delete!! I will be mounting the finished model on a scratch-built cradle and section of launch rail , I was going to mount it using magnets but owing to it's weight I may mount it permanentaly. ( Any flights around the workshop being done beforehand..............) All in all, very impressed with Uncle Bill's new kit, have got His Angel Interceptor in the stash, and will look at getting His Thunderbird 1 & 3 kits as well! Off the give the bits a bath now,will start cleaning up and assembly Tomorrow! Keep Sticking! Cheers, Pete
