    Just a quick update - things not going as quickly as I'd hoped, but getting there - just the face, visor and brush to finalise and document then hopefully I'm done - perhaps in a week or so if all goes well.

    Instructions will be a little threadbare but should be enough to see people through, I'll probably revisit it in a few months when I do an A3 build, but at the moment I really want to press on with other things (and have a break from Marv for a while).

    My Beta builder has let me down so I'll only be doing a limited release initially in case there are any glaring errors - I'll have built the model from the parts so everything should be okay in this respect (fingers crossed), but I just might need to clarify things here and there.

    As such if you're willing to give it a build over the next month let me know via a post or a PM and I'll send the kits to the first 3 who get in touch (Zeb and Paper Warrior let me know if you're still interested and I'll send them your way).

    After 3 successful builds I'll go public :)

    Regards

    Paul.

    Beta Build

    I'd be happy to do a beta build of this model if you still need volunteers.

    Model & Beta done - time for limited release!!!!

    Well the kit has been finished and had a thorough Beta Build by the mighty SurfDuke - everything looks in order.

    As I said I'm doing a limited release initially to the first 3 folks who let me know that they're interested (kits on their way to Zeb and B-Manic).

    Paul.

    P.S. Best regards and again major thanks to the SurfDukeDuke.

    Stev0,

    You are thinking about Gossamer, the Red hairy, no neck, sneaker wearing monster.

    Ya know, one of the admins of this site is a big Looney Tunes fan, and he would really appreciate a copy of Marvin.

    So Bazooka, if you could find the time, to send him a copy?

    He will be looking forward to it

    On its way Paul

    No Problem Rick :)

    That should be enough now.

    When I get feedback of 3 successful builds I'll be releasing it publicly - gives me a little time to get a basic web page together as a home for the little guy. Also gives the instructions a few more dry runs.

    Regards

    Paul.

    Message to advanced builder party:

    If anyone wants to take some photos while they're building to help illustrate the process please do so.

    As you can see from the instructions - my camera is pants:mad: !

    You might want to check with The Webdude about hosting Marvin. It would fit right in with his theme.

    You can check out his site at http://www.paperian.com/

    The Webdude's site rocks but I've already got my webspace, and a domain name sorted www.bazookajo.me.uk (nothing there yet though).

    After all I'll need the space for all the excellent models I'm going to be building over the next year:wink:

    Regards

    Paul.

    Broken, Lost, Borrowed, Cameras

    It seems that one can't be a master builder, (and have a good Digital Camera). Myself included!!!
