    I'm sure a lot of us have this kit for spare parts for Studio Scale models.

    I decided a long while back to build it out, and here it is...

    There is all sorts of "wrong" on this, in terms of both accuracy and build quality. But I set a specific "bar" for what I wanted, and pretty much hit it, opting not to super-detail the kit due to its size..

    PHArchivist, not only do you have some great building skills you also have a knack for photographs. I always like the way you photograph your models. Realistic and definately not static.

    Nice build.

    That's a fine collection of Nebulon B, TIE Bomber, Escape Pod and Millennium Falcon parts organized into an iconic spacecraft from human space exploration!

    Very nice work!

    Thanks... Yeah I tried to get mostly the true sky behind the model, and tried to get the "looking up" perspective" fairly well.

    Ha! Well stated!

    What the heck? A Saturn V model that wasn't used for kitbashing? Unheard of! LOL

    Nice build. Is that the Airfix or the Revell?

    Well, what he did was kit bashing. But he just bashed the parts together in a manner originally intended. ;)

    Very nice model. I assume it is the Airfix kit (new one by the look of the Apollo CSM top side). The photography against a blue sky is indeed very well done.
