    GH? You sure? I've never seen a GH with the top of the face like that? Looks like a modded Portumac...

    I didnt see the pics on the left. Thats not a GH for sure.

    I gotta check this out.... looks somewhat like an SS props lid. Can't say for sure.

    Definitely not a GH...

    The "sonar pit" slots below the eyes look to be different than on the Portumac.

    Looks like one of the unfinished casts that Vaderpainter and a few others were offering on ebay awhile ago....

    Nice touch with the dome tabs. Those are separate pieces right? May I ask where you got them from?

    Nice paint job on the Vader above, can I ask what processes you used to paint it, was it by Spray gun or from a can and then polished? Nice work :thumbsup

    Ah thatÂ’s why i screwed them on?? the only reason there fitted is so i can set up the dome connection which will be done before i paint Paul The snap connectors are from original found parts off an apple computer the
    spraying is done by me in a spray bay i have access to in work using a spray gun and airbrush for fine detail
