Working on the figure (1st you have to shave the legs a little to get to fit. Than adjust the arm to sit right.)

Cockpit and Pilot are definitely the most tedious part of the build.
Coming together nicely. :thumbsup:

The level of detailing is astonishing! It's feature film quality on those panels. I've seen real used movie miniatures up close and even their detailing isn't that good. Makes me miss the days of miniatures and motion control... :(

Its done.The PGMS cockpit is a must for this kit makes it look 100% better.I used spa blue for a color although it no the exact color its close as you can get in a can that i could find. Over all I think i came out decent. (Look for the beauty shot's to come.)
