Default Review: 12" Eagle Accessories by Alex Dumas

Alex kindly sent these to me for a quick 'out-of-the-box' review and I'm more than happy to oblige; especially as they are top-notch quality items.

These really are well-made and the packaging is robust and secure, too. Minimal clean-up and superb quality resin.

Can't wait to get the steps built up.

Packaged in specimen bags and secured in bubble wrap and heavy card box:


The Baffle Set:


The Laser Rig:


The Steps:


The Hangar Triangle:


Nice work, Alex!

See The Catacombs sub-forum for ordering info.

Guys,

I only can agree. Received mine today, the steps and the laser turret and I must say, really great quality.
And it was really very fast coming in......
I am now waiting for the instructions and then I will start.
(I haven“t done any model building since twenty years, so any help and suggestions are heavily welcome....)

Cheers

I get some money to pay for mine which are waiting with Alex We're moving in April (somehow) and the Bond for a house and buying boxes will be enough to see us on bread and dripping for a few weeks (As a friend of mine says... the whole string section can't keep up)

But then, once its all done, its off to paypal to grab mine. Can't wait.

Mine arrived today as well. I've only had time to give them a quick once over (I've been working insane hours the past couple of weeks), but they look to be very clean casts with good detail. I'm looking forward to adding them to one of my Eagles soon.

I have uploaded the assembly instructions http://www.geocities.com/adumas02/eagle.pdf

Consider this guide a 'draft' since I have not yet build these accessories for my own Eagles . So, expect a few better pics and maybe more details in the next version (in a few weeks).

Don't hesitate to email or post your feedback and questions.

And thanks for the comments!
