    Just waiting on the wing insignias to show up, and to install the electronics to light this baby up.. This kit was a DREAM to put together.. Thank you JESSE.
    I can't believe how big it is too.

    That's awesome. Very nice build up and paint job. It looks huge. Looking forward to shots with the lighting installed.

    Great work. :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup









    P.S. I like the feet of the AT-AT in the background, too. :D

    Dean, I didn't think I could pull it off as good as you. I usually stick to busts and figures. Just starting to get the hang of starships. Plus I can't work with electronics to save my life but I'm seeing Lee in Orlando in 2 weeks and he was going to put them in for me.

    That is really fantastic.... Would look really cool on my shelf.... If you need a place to store it.... ??? :)


    Actually it would look awesome side by side with a raider from the new BSG.

    Love the weathering. I personally believe all these kits should be beat up. )

    Hi Guys, does anyone know if this is still being made ?, I've PM'd and emailed the man who makes them but he's not replyed yet. ( not sure if I can mention his name or not ..) I'd love one to go with the viper he sent to me. Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Jesse is quite busy these days with work and family. He has a few other projects on his table at this time. I wouldn't expect to get a Raider from him anytime soon, but who am I to speak for him? :angel You may try contacting Mike Salzo (the guy who now sells the CC X-Wing) to see if he can get one for you. Jesse and Mike had teamed up for a few of these Raider kits. I have Mike's email and contact info,.. but it would be better if I new it was ok to give it out before just putting it out there.

    Anyway,... Jesse's kits are definitely of premium quality and I have a few being built up with even a few more of his projects on order. His work is top notch and I highly recommend getting some of it if you are able. He is a very good guy and a great model master in my book. :D

    Good luck to you. :p

    Thanks very much for your help, I've emailed Mike, as i've had an Xwing from him in the past. I didn't know he and Jesse work together sometimes.

    Fingers crossed.

    Thanks again

    Phil
