Hi guys, this literally just landed on my doorstep. It's the Nice-N Model Gold Leader, spruced up by Mike Salzo and myself (a smidge), and has been molded and cast by Mike, to be offered for sale very shortly! He has kindly volunteered to help Steve take care of a couple of outstanding owed Y-Wings, so they are getting fulfilled before the kit gets released. This is a heads up that it is coming soon!

I am checking everything over on my end to generate the parts inventory and instruction guide, and I will update this thread as that happens.

First pass at instructions - not finished but will give you a start!

And I might add, Triangles is planned for later, but if you have a Gold Leader in progress already, from Dave G's open source project (like I do, lol), you could turn this new Gold Leader kit into a Triangles by omitting a few plant ons, and minimal piping changes. In case you want to have your cake and eat it too.

And if you want to be accurate, make sure the Triangles head sags sadly and be kind of sloppy with the build, lol. It was a pyro, after all!

Oh... and I swear, I am working on decal sheet MkII for the Y-Wings and other subjects. Just don't have a firm date on when I will be ready. I will shoot for after Wonderfest this Summer.

Hmmm, let's see...do i get one of these gorgeous y-wings, or another of Mikes incredible x-wings...?

Oh hell, I guess I'll have to get both.

I really like that there isn't a ton of resin to sand off the parts as in some kits.

Mike, when will these be available for sale, and what is the expected price?

Might as well put me on the 'list' for this one too...

Thanks!

Hi Mike,

Did you get my PM a couple days ago? I would like to be on the list for one of these kits please. Kit is looking fantastic in those shots!
