Still not 100% with my hand, and i'm not entirely ready to attempt one of my paper models yet, but I have been doing exercises to restore flexibility and limberness in my hand. Here is a little project I did. Even though it took me longer than it would have 6 months ago, im pleased with the results.

Beautiful.

- Short question - I also was thinking about making one of the metal models (X-Wing or Millenium Falcon).
Could you give me an hint about the difficulty of the assambling of the Destroyer.

Thanks everyone.....Starbuck, it wasnt that difficult, alot of tiny pieces, but honestly the hardest part was getting the angles on the main body right. but the model has alot of forgiveness if you arent exact.

Thx for the info. I think I am gonna buy me the x-wing and/or the millenium falcon.
Anna selected really nice models - enjoy building. Would like to see the finalized models.
What about the ship - are the ropes made of metal too?

That is cool that Anna supports you like that!!
I am looking forward to seeing you build more of these models.

I would like to see them make a Colonial Viper (does not maker the version) or the BRTC25 Thunder Fighter.

Started the Queen Ann's Revenge last night, and finished this morning. Difficulty level is higher than i was used to for these metal Models, but it wasn't too bad. Im pleased with the result. (scroll down for more pics, and a rotating vid)

Have two more Metalworks to build. Anna bought these for me for a "Fury" themed display. (She is a fan of the Sherman, and my Son a fan of the Tiger) should be interesting.
