Hi friends~!

I'd like to have a plan to make SS Sandcrawler.
According to research for a few months, I know ANH models have a lot of common donor parts. (Especially, ISD, SC and Escape pod)
Fortunately or unfortunately, I already own many parts to make SC because I spent a lot of money for ANH ISD as you know.:cry
But SC is required the additional costs than ISD because of 4 sets of Tamiya 1/16 Sherman.

Actually, I'm planning to make it for future 2 years. (kits indentify, dimension drawing, modeling, painting and so on...)
1st step, I'm finding kit parts as ref. photo (the photo is quoted from Kurt's webpage...thanks to Kurt).
Please help me, if you know for 1~3 parts

thanks Eric.

OMG Eric! I've never seen all the kit parts laid out on a sandcrawler before. The engine area of the sandcrawler has always been one of my favorite parts of a star wars vehicle. It's cool to see all of the separate parts.

WOW! Looks great! Thanks for posting such good pics of it too.

Eric,

Fantastic work. Thanks for sharing those detail build-up pics... sometimes I wish that no primer/paint was required, since those shots of all the parts laid out always in SS are stunning. Will be watching this one closely. Amazing.

Stunning, stunning work Eric, haven't heard from you in a while, I can see why, judging by this amazing build!. Just jaw dropping stuff my friend, talent at it's best!. I love seeing these builds in it's raw form, all the kit part colors give a clue to it's origin, shame to cover in paint dude!.
Stu:love

Isel,
I'm a soft man. :) I just got some parts of sealab from my friend to make SC because my casting skill is not enough.

Vegetariian,
It can be possible by your kit information. thanks

Dave,
I also got one of the sealab part, which was used on engine baffles of ANH SD and will retry casting...

Lee,
Do you know? Actually that is inspired form your rebel transport

Matt,
I'm doing SC and Hero Tie at the same time~!

Scott, Cowen, PH, Kevin, Jason, JPagaduan, Stu and TazMan
Thank you so much for your kind words~!
I'll keep unpainted view and all of colors until finish of it.

Juile,
I like your ESB ISD than my SC:)
First of all, I'm planning main body excluding tank track parts and
I will add RC tank parts after save money...:lol:lol
