    This is a fairly momentous occassion for me as I very rarely ever finish building a model and this is by far the best looking one I've ever done. Here she is in all her splendor:

    Will,

    I attempted to purchase the model but ran into viewer installation problems that I don't have time to mess with. Very nice model but I'm forced to pass...,

    Gil,
    Will offers sale of a printed version of his model. You can contact him directly to arrange that if you are interested.

    I really am tired of you guys going out and buying these high quality die cast beauties and trying to pass them off as something you built yourself...oh wait, i looked at that design thread almost daily while you were working on it. :roll:
    She sure is a looker! Awesome design and an excelent build, really top notch.
    As soon as I can afford it I will be sending an order your way.

    Great model! Congrats!

    I may have to purchase the kit this way as well since I take my digitals to a printer to have them laser color'd which is why I can't buy the kits I want from Gremir. [​IMG]

    Will,

    This IS the one to finish!

    She is a beauty and you should be proud of BOTH the build and the design, both are "top notch!"

    Thanks guys. I have to admit though that the model isn't really that clean. This being the beta and all there are a lot of fit problems (left wing is ugly but the right is okay etc). I got glue all over the place and if you could see it up close it's really dirty from being handled so much but at least the lighting and the background used to photograph it hid some of that.

    @Gil I'm sorry to hear of your misfortunes. Like Mike said I do offer the kit in preprinted form for the same price (plus shipping) if you are interested.

    Oh, I don't think I'll do it as a thread, I've got the definitive one to go by! ;)

    After considerable arm twisting I got my professional photographer brother to take soem really stunning shots (he also like the idea of getting his shots on POTW and we're hoping to get the first one of 2007). He added the backgrounds to a couple and they look really cool but you can see for yourself:

    Man that looks spiffy! If that doesn't sell some models I don't know what will. I'm planing this one for my next build - can't wait!
