    Mostly finished. Will leave it another 24 hours and do the last decals on the lower thruster pods and a final satin coat on some parts.

    The vents on the inlet side of the thrusters are really basic. I might search through my stuff and see if I can find something a bit more interesting.

    Scale wise it's pretty good and comes in at about the same size as the Vouivre Striker. It interchanges as well with an extra adaptor so it has the rectangular peg the same as the Vouivre. Still a bit bummed about the spots etched by the Mr Mark Softer because other than that it came up fairly well.

    Thanks RPC, I'm happy enough with it. Now I can get on with the blue frames, although I still have to come up with some way of displaying all the red frame bits together. I might steal the Qan[t] small stand that I painted and use that to hold the flight pack and make some sort of sword/ shield/ beam rifle rack.

    Have assembled the Deban Blue Frame D torso and waist unit. The only real issue with the waist unit was the ABS main joiner that allows the torso to stretch and bend a limited amount. It cracked so out with some epoxy. I should have opened up the through hole more or trimmed the peg size back more. The rest of it has snapped together quite well. I'll post some pics when I get home from work, I'm getting quite a collection of torsos on my work desk. LOL

    Also made a start on the Great Saber......... surprisingly the torso again. It's the BT version and I'm actually very impressed so far with the quality of the parts. The detail panel lines etc. are all very nice. A few surface dimples, but these seem to be on hidden parts only with the parts that show all being quite good.

    - - - Updated - - -

    finally a couple of pics... was busy unfortunately. The great saber is starting to take shape. Along with all the other torsos.





    There are some nasty nubs on the leg mounting points, but this won't be seen once the legs are fitted. I was tempted to clean them up and fill them. the hydraulic actuators on the top I did fully strip and re-paint with Alclad pale gold. The inserts will be done in Alclad chrome. These bits do get seen. I probably need to apply some decals and then finish with a sealing coat, blending between full flat and satin and finish off with some brush detailing. The red is a lot more candy than the pic shows.

    A bit more done on the Great Saber.It's taking a long time doing the reds. They are all different shades and finishes.
