    I've recently finished Jaybats' Republic Destroyer. This is the version repainted (and in a couple places reworked) by JanoNath. Scaled down to about 75%. Some assemblies are very clunky, including the superstructure. No instructions, so can be tricky sometimes, as well! No placement guides either, but this would really only have helped with the engine placements and the I-beam internal spine brace.

    Comments are welcome. I know it's not the best. I had some issues that I "hid" rather than corrected (my fault, not the kit).

    Credit where it's due: To the designer and painter of the kit.

    I'm glad you were able to get it together. It is actually the first model I have ever worked on. The super structure can be a real pain, I'm not exactly sure how you were able to get it at 75%. That's amazing. I'm glad you liked it.

    I didn't quite "get it" at 75% ;)

    hehe, there are some major mistakes I did with those two tower supports. You can see some, and can't see others. It probably made things worse that this was xerox paper, not a more rigid stock.
