    I just got my kit today, fresh off the truck from Chile!

    It was packed EXCEPTIONALLY well, and I'll let the pics speak for themselves (a more detailed review will come later if any one wants it):

    That kit is BEAUTIFUL. And if I had ANY modeling skill whatsoever, your pics alone would have convinced me to get it.

    That looks freakin incredible! Love the droids. You going to have it finished for Wonderfest next year?

    By the way, your cat looks like my Winky.

    Hi everyone!
    Jason, thank you very much for the trust you placed in us and for your valuable help.

    We are really happy to see our first X-Wings in the RPF! And that both of them have arrived safely. I must say we were really worried about the packaging, and really afraid of the Edward Scissorhands working at some of the world's custom offices:lol.
    I must say that Rodrigo and I spent a lot of time last year just learning how to fight those evil bubbles! So we are very happy that only a few ones per casts have survived this fight!

    Right now, we are a little delayed with some kits because we are making new molds for the Fuselage and wings to ensure a quality continuity for the second wave of kits.

    Bests:
    Rod

    Well, it is always better to overpack and assume the Sampsonite Gorilla will be handling this, then it is to underpack, mark the box "fragile" and assume the postal worker will treat the thing with kit gloved (because they SELDOM ever do that).

    As for what I see there... WOW! I like it (and I wish I could afford it, but I am broke these days). It looks like it will be an enjoyable build for certain.

    It means "Live Chile, * it!"...roughly. Yeah, mierda would mean s**t if using the spanish I speak, but not the case here. This statement is actually a positive one.

    Wow, such nice packaging!

    Wow looks nice, and a review would be great
    Do the two halves of the body match up nicely or is it putty time?

    Nice review and thanks for posting all the cool pics

    Any chance we can see a side by side shot of an un-assembled Salzo V3 fuselage along side of a Art2Modelfuselage?

    Just to compare
