Good Job!   thats about as good as that kit is going to look.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

That's some great work, JD.

Just a question - was there no swastika sticker for the tail? Just curious if they censure those in model kits. It's been a long time since I've put a model together...maybe I should get into it. Like I need another habit, but I do love miniatures and models.

yes they censure it in European kits.  Japanese kits usually have multipart decals to get around it.

Thank you all.

You should JH - it's a very relaxing hobby. I can spend hours on a Saturday or Sunday just piecing bits together, priming, painting.

I started off a couple of years ago with enamels like my dad and brother used to do. We just glued, painted and that was that.

It took me a while but I now do airbrushing and weathering. I've got a huge amount of distance to go - but I'm happy producing what I produce. It doesn't have to be like some of the seemingly professional dioramas I see around. When I first saw those, they were intimidating - but I came to just be happy learning new techniques.

I'm way not good enough to start spending £50+ on a kit - but one day...

JD, you're skill has improved greatly since just a couple years ago. It's been cool to see the progression. You've been dedicated to your craft.
