So any of you who happen to follow my projects, if any, will know that I picked up a Revell EasyKit Landspeeder (as used by a certain Luke Skywalker in a certain Episode IV: A New Hope) for the princely sum of £9.99
On a first look, it's not a bad kit; that said though, Revell's kits are never that bad on first looks. The molding was decent enough, and the scale and proportions seemed to be correct; however I noticed at least 2 details that I was going to be annoyed without.
1) the rather conspicuous dent in the front of the speeder
2) the neck of the third/middle jet/vent thingy is curved in the model kit but straight in the original. Hrmph.
Anyway, first up: I cut and filed all the parts, then spray painted parts that would end up in light colours white, and dark colours in black
I then got up to butchering the dent in with a soldering iron
AND thus far, that is all I have done!
Any advice and suggestions are very welcome indeed.
