Sorry for the Threadomancy, but I have just got hold of "Drone 1" from Destiny, so glad they are still producing these kits.

Quite honestly, this is the best resin model I have ever seen. It looks to be pressure cast, so there are only 1 or 2 pinhole bubbles in the entire thing. The instructions are comprehensive, but do require a certain amount of common sense and looking to work some of the bits out.

If anyone is intersted, I am willing to write a blog on here detailing my progress. ~(Warning: It is likely to be boring for a while as I don't have a lot of time to work on hobbies, and the start is to sand the join areas and work out an assembly sequence that will allow me to paint the vast majority of it by spray-gun. Something eminently do-able thanks to the excellent way they have produced the parts.)

Default "DEWEY"

I built Dewey a couple of years ago and did a build diary. Here it is. As has been said, this is possibly the finest resin kit I have ever seen. Have a look if you have a spare 10 minutes !

Cheers,
Chris.
