    Parts all laid out and numbered UHU02 will hopefully be starting to build this beauty soon.
    Redwolf everything seems to be as was on UHU02's site :thumb:

    I guess you mean the log in to his library; yes, he has. Take a look at the Uhu02 appreciation thread and thank him for his generosity :cool: . Good luck!

    That's some amazing detail and a lovely model. What software does he use for design? It looks like it creates some accurate parts without need for scaling or testing in order for the builds to be so accurate on first attempt.

    More work this time on the cheek pieces,these drove me mad on Gary's version but the formers on this should help a lot.

    would of been even further along with an everlasting glue pot,I really hope this gives UHU02 a taste for Gerry Anderson models hows about a UHU02 S.H.A.D.O Mobile or a Spectrum Angel Interceptor,A large scale UHU02 Angel Interceptor with cockpit details, oh I just went all faint and wobbly then:roll1:

    Angel Interceptor would be really nice. I have the airfix one, it's ok, but to small.

    One of the Japanese model companies,possibly Bandi did a larger Angel kit I don't know if they still do.Gary's is larger than the Airfix but not got the detail that a UHU02 kit would have.I had three Airfix Angels hanging from a thread over my bed as a kid and now they have re-released it I might well have them hanging there again,better than the dream catcher thing my wife has.

    Well i've been away for a while. I have been told about this model design and build from my old mate Phil {Gix} he sang it's praise and rightfully so, this is abso-bloody-lutely fantastic. UHU02 has worked his magic once again. My hat is off to the guy.... what a talent ! Looking forward to seeing her complete. :thumb:

    What a beauty! :thumb:

    This will be a must have and the building instructions are great with all those photos. A picture is worth a thousand words.
