    Hi all,

    Getting more into the body of the project/challenge(pun intended)

    I can see that the American kit has been released after the German kit, reason being, the way of the build order, with the german kit, I ended up with the collar, had some fit issues, but nothing out of the ordinary.
    Whereas with the american kit, the collar being the first thing you construct, and no fit issues.

    But some of this might not be what you wanted to read about.

    So, on to the pictures

    Now for the Interactive Portion of the build.

    The next two stages in these kits are up next.

    For the German kit, Step 3 are the legs, Step 4 is the Head and Helmet
    For the American kit, Step 3 is the Head and Helmet, and Step 4 are the legs.

    So my question to the assembled masses is as following......

    Should I build both heads or the legs?

    Make up my mind.

    Looks great, Rick!8)
    I vote for the legs to be next.
    I think the head will give the model "life" and should be saved for last.
    Just my humble opinion.:roll:

    I'd do the legs first as well - they can be tricky to fit - the heads seem to go on quite easily. (Just about to fit the Archer's head - might need some salt and pepper with those words ;))

    I'd do the arms before the head as well - arms can be tricky to fit - the neck makes a handy access hole.

    In construction, we build the foundation first, not the roof.
    My vote is for the feet...
    Looking good Rick!
