I got my hands on some half decent loot today, which included a cut-price Landspeeder (easykit again) and a pocket easykit 'Falcon
Of course, opening the Revell kits was the usual mix of semi-disappointment and pleasant surprise that we've all come to expect from these kind of low-end cheap-ass models. Not that I'm complaining at all!
I expected a terrible paintjob, and Revell did not disappoint. The kit immediately looks plastic-y and unprofessional; on the other hand the detail this thing packs for its size is very impressive. (although still not enough to escape the modifying hands of SqbieDoo)
All I'm intending to do is clear and flash from moulding, maybe refine some areas but mainly repaint it and kit it out with lights. Ideally I'd love to do a display like Crackerjazz, as this scale lends itself better than kind of display.
At any rate, considering I only acquired this kit a few hours ago, I'm making quite a headway already! Any suggestions and advice welcome, trust me, I need it!
