    I ordered my kit on the 16th last month and nothing yet. I emailed Anigrand last night on the delivery date and no reply yet.

    BTW, the guys over at Starshipmodeler are saying that Anigrand was hit with a C & D.

    I ordered mine on the 16th Jan too and Arnold has said it was shipped last wednesday.So needless to say I`m rather chuffed that I got in while I could.

    I also had my frigate arrive last week and to say thats it`s beutifully detailed is an understatement.The thing is small but the details are sooo crisp and nicely cast.Same with the little blockade runner.

    It`s a shame about the C&D but it`s happening more and more these days.You can`t blame people for wanting kits like these when the liscenced stuff is so average.

    I got the kit a couple of days ago and can't stop looking at it in awe. It is beautifully detailed , well cast and fits as well (or better than) a styrene kit,
    absolutely amazing,

    What a steal! Too bad I'm broke. Hopefully this kit will be available for a while.
    Apparently Anigrand just got hit with a C&D. More that likely no more SW kits from them.

    If there is a kit out there that you like made by an unauthorized GK maker...better get it now. I missed the boat myself by sitting on the fence. Too bad, this SD looked like a nice kit.

    That's a real shame. The Anigrand Star Destroyer is a thing of beauty and I was just about to order another and their 1/144 Falcon, now I've just paid off the Xmas credit card bill.
    Still at least FM are doing the Falcon, which I believe is nicer than the Anigrand one (and cheaper), so it's not all bad.

    Put a good dent in this thing today for a few hours.

    Only concern I have is that both top and bottom halfs will ultimately assemble for a straight looking profile, it should but we shall see.


    Other then that no big issues, a gap here and there.
    Nice thing is you can add little styrene squares or what have you to help cover gaps
    and they will look totally at home on this thing.

    I got mine today.Wow that was fast shipping.Sent last wednesday from China and got to me in Australia today/Monday.

    My god this is an awsome kit.No pictures I`ve seen do it justice.The details are incredible and the casting perfect.It`s also a very managable size.I always wanted the RC version but it is just that bit to big for me to display whereas this is just right,not to mention the same scale as other subjects I have.

    Awsome work Anigrand,you`ve brought a kit to me that I`ve wanted for over 30years.Thank you.It was fun while it lasted.

    The two hull halves and engine area aren't attached to each other yet, so just loose fitted together, but getting there.

    Really wanted to mate the hulls today, but I struggled with getting the geometry straight when looking down the side. Doesn't help the hull parts are warped, so the hot water trick and weights overnight to get them straighter.

    Played around with the best order to bring the hulls together.
    I've assembled the bottom hull in full, then I'll glue in place the top front hull.
    Then you can slide the back top hull with terraces into place, leaving the back engine area off so you can reach inside and glue the rear hull in place. I left the area behind the terraces in the back unglued, this allows some wiggle room to get the engine section in.
    At least that is the plan for now.

    My kit arrived today - it shipped out last week, so I just got in under the C&D wire. The box was really beat to heck, but the kit itself seems undamaged. I don't suppose anyone snagged the photo of the parts off Anigrand's website before they took it down? I'd like to refer to it to when I take inventory.

    My SD kit showed up Wednesday and I picked it up from the post office today. No damage even though the top tape seal had completely unsealed itself. Thank the resin gods that the inner packaging was intact without any loss of parts.

    Got mine today too! Yes that box looked bad, but everything inside was good, I must have underestimated the power of the dark side! Just wish I could have got that Rebet Transport

    Been spending most of the afternoon getting the hulls mated properly.
    Getting straight lines along the side is challenging, still heating parts and using weights to get them bent straight. I think I should have all the big parts together by the end of tomorrow and can start filling seams and detailing a few areas.

    Finally the hulls are together forever now. Lots of test fitting and straightening I figured I did all I could do and dumped the glue on.
    Main engine bells are just velcroed on for now so they stick out a little more then they should, still need to clean them up a bit. Conning tower not glued in place yet. I took a picture of a tie wrap trick I did.
    I had the split hull version and that was the best way to pull the halves close, this keeps the terraces angled level in the back as well and I didnt tighten them until I slipped the engine section in. I suggest re-enforcing the inner midsection with struts, keeps the top from flexing and should help keep things stable after filling the seams.

    Oh yeah, for some reason they only gave us one short fat pipe for the engine section.
    It really needs two so I bent some styrene sprue. You'll see what I mean when your putting it together.

    Funny my box was beat to s%^t too.Squashed and a huge hole on one side.I was so worried things would be broken or missing.Everything was there and perfect,even the little conning tower points.I`ve never had any package so beaten up.You guys are in the US and I`m in Australia so I guess it`s happening at Chinas end.
