While I'm finishing off the paintwork on the Mosquito B Mk IV for the Mosquito GB, I thought I'd make a start on this recent mad purchase from Comet Miniatures. I was inspired by watching a Large Scale vacform build of a Minbari fighter on the LSP board recently and so the credit card got a kicking and a very simple package arrived about a week later. It was an unfancy carboard box that looked like this: Inside were lots of plastic bags with bits of resin in, plus some white metal bits, a PE fret and a decal sheet. Oh and a brass rod as well! The instruction erm "booklet" is remarkably skimpy but seems to contain all the instructions: So my hope is to make it look a bit like this: This should be fun!
I began this build in the Hour of Longing in 2013, but for various reasons it got put to one side until a couple of weeks ago where I decided it had been on the shelf of Za'had'Doom* for too long. Its a resin kit from Warp and as such isn't an easy thing to build. The casting is - to be honest - a bit ropey, the moulds are probably getting old and it does show in places. Original build there is here * Yes I know I spelled it wrong deliberately! ...and so we arrive at the Hour of Scampering... We have always been here... The central accommodation section does rotate, but its NOT motorised! See, told you so! The red spots are emergency lifeboats So there you have it. I'm going to enjoy having this on the shelf next to the Sulaco from last year It'll be doing the show tour for the rest of this year, next scheduled one is Romsey and Smallspace in July...
