    Thanks for the complements . . . it is a fun build -- highly recommended

    eatcrow2- The model has no special finish. It was printed on Canson 300 g/m2 or 140lb water colour paper. The tooth (cold press, fine grain, finish) of the paper combined with ink makes for an interesting effect. I picked up several 12 packs of 9x12 sheets at a clearance centre for $2.50 each.

    rlc321- The canopy is the clear plastic that was covering the control panel on my new printer. Cut, fit and glued to interior window frames. Then covered with a second print of the cockpit on plain paper to hold in place and finesse the cockpit.

    CRISP build B-Manic!! excellent use of alternative papers, ~ I hope I wasn't the only one that hadn't thought of that, the surface texture looks great!

    *I don't think I've checked in here once without learning something new. Thanks!
    :-D

    Legs

    Are your legs put on backwards or did the original have the legs backwards?
    Not bashing just curious. Looks great. I haven't built mine yet.

    I don't know, you could say they are on backwards. But, they are not on the way the designer intended. I was waiting to see if anyone noticed. Good spot. I like it better this way. :-D

    I am almost finished a repainted version with various minor mods. It will be posted here as 'Gunwalker 2'.
