    Thanks swgeek for the kind words but unfortunately I didn't document this build photographically, I've never really done that before.

    Thanks guys for the feedback. Good to hear from you Nick, I've always admired your work, the speeder you mastered was fantastic, I could never imagine trying to make a kit of this thing.

    Hi guys, just for kicks, I wanted to compare my model to the original. What do you think?

    I wish your photography was half as good as your modeling skills.

    Stormy, you are so right, I have no idea how to take a good picture and I have been trying, I even got a decent digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix. I've taken photography classes in Art college many years ago, the only thing I was good at was spontaneous outdoor shots, very quick shutter speeds. Most people take better shots with their phones. Do you have any suggestions?

    Hey guys just wanted to give an update on the model. The hull is complete and assembled. I just finished detailing the blasters and attached them. I just have to finish the cockpit and harpoon gun. I really tried to make the pics better and hope you agree. Your opinions are welcome.

    Yeah that is pretty epic. The t48 is my favorite craft from the entire series.

    Hands down that has got to be one of the best scratched snowspeeders I've seen here and the weathered finish is superb. Bravo!
