    Ive been looking at the StarWars Revel Easy model Kits on Flea bay and they are coming in at some really low prices.

    I know they are inaccurate but the reason i have been looking at them is for the purpose of the next UK Prop Party.

    I was thinking of buying a few of these Kits and getting you guys to build them in a sort of Model Making workshop we could perhaps throw in some extra pieces to try and make them slightly more accurate and then at the end of the weekend raffle them off or give them away.

    At the recent SFX weekender there was a gaming workshop that was really popular and i was thinking along the same sort of lines with a model building workshop.

    what do you think :)

    Good idea, but you know the easy kits are literally easier to build than Lego sets? There's not much model building involved - except you go down the road of heavily modifying them.

    i did think about the ease of building these but at the Prop Party we only have a weekend to get them built which kind of made sense, the general idea i had was for the guys to show that by using an "easy Kit" and adding extra bits you can make anything look at little more Accurate..... does that make sense :confused

    Sounds like a great idea! I love seeing people take what's already available out there and improving on it.

    We had a German model builder at the last Jedi Con repaint an Easy Kit Falcon - looked ten times better afterwards. That might be an idea. Building it takes 15 minutes - not much of a workshop ;)

    maybe try and source some of the old AMT/ERTL kits? at least that's proper building and they're usually not too expensive either.
