Default scratch built rebel transporter

Hello everyone,
THE FIRST TRANSPORTER IS AWAY was the cry in the film well this is my first scratch built transporter and it is now away or will be once it gets a base coat of paint to go on display at TRANSPORT MODELS OF PRESTON LANCASHIRE . all built from flat sheet plastic with the adding of just a few bits from my spares box. I hope that you like it and please let me know and be honest as this will help to make me build better models in the future.

regards Barrie ( the old guy )

I'm only familiar with the basic shape and not the detail. But holy heck that looks convincing. The raised panel detail is exceptional and demonstrates your ability and dedication. I like the sly addition of the Girder Bridge part too. Not that I'm any authority but I can't fault it at all. Nice work.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - absolutely amazing work Barrie.
I wouldn't have the patience to cut out all those panels.
great stuff.

thank you boys, for you kind comments, YES I did sneak in some girder bridge parts a little homage to Thunderbird,s which were a great inspiration to me when I was younger. As for the panel detail it gets a bit like doing a jig saw you know there are loads of pieces and you just keep putting in one piece at a time but I will admit it is very calming time stands still and seconds minutes and hours just pass by in an instant. I find it very relaxing or am I just very odd ?.

Hello Crimson binome well that all depends if nobody likes it or takes a fancy to it YES it will be there I do hope you get chance to visit the shop the guys are very friendly and helpful.
as for the model did my best with very little information no real accurate plans and very few images on the web or in the star wars books I have, but it as you say looks the part.
