what scifi stuff has the postman delivered to you today?

Thanks for that. Local suppliers seem to still be waiting, and Round 2 hasn't got the metal set listed -- or didn't when last I looked. 🤨

I like to weather down exposed metals so using actual metal bells would be wasted on me...

 

I will defiantly be getting one of these kits- I have the larger R2 Eagle kit but no room to display it when completed...

Here's a quick comparison between the venerable 1970's Airfix kit and the new 1/72 version. Notwithstanding the superior shape and detail you can see that the new kit is considerably larger and larger than the WARP resin and Product Enterprise Eagles.

@Nocoolname, I picked up the new 1/72 Eagle a couple of days ago. What a great-looking kit! I can't wait to start it.

Please post some of your progress photos!- I have been trying to talk myself into getting one for myself but I already have the R2 Large Eagle (unbuilt) and a Product Enterprises one...

Nice one Ben! It's great isn't it? My five remain on the shelf for the time being. Paragrafix are to release a PE set for this kit so I'm waiting on that and will be reworking some of the parts I designed for my own Eagle several years back so they can be included with one of my kits, such as interiors for the CM, walkways and passenger pod. I'm really hoping R2 bring out the cargo and science pod variants.

Since when has having a 'stash' put us off from buying more? What's wrong with you? Give that wallet some exercise! :D

I’m planning to go ahead and start it soon. I still have some other projects I’m trying to drag across the finish line, but the Eagle is going to be too tempting to save until later. I’ll definitely post pics when I start it.
