    Thats great news.

    I look forawrd to seeing you start the project. Im sorry if you already know this, i dont know what you can do so here is my two pence.

    In regard to the figures,my advise is buy the smallest brush avaliable like a 00 fine. and keep the brush extra clean with methylated spirit and water, asuming your going to go with acrylic paint,which is nicer than that evil enamel paint.

    Also maybe give the figures a light primer and dont forget to wash all the plastic sprus before paint.

    Hope that was some help

    Progress so far.
    Pre shaded Chewie.


    And with a bit of the brown stuff mixed in.


    Han was a little easier.


    Seat backs cut down and pilots placed in position.
    From this,


    to this.


    Canopy frame thinned out and test fitted.

    That's why up to this I was ordering other kits from Japan singularly to keep it below €22,
    might be cheaper to get from a European reseller, time will tell

    Han's insurance rates must be horrible. Maybe that's why the ship is still so dinged up after all these years. He's afraid to make a claim what with all the damage it has sustained over the years.
