Default MEV kits.

About time too, I am just about to start work on the two resin UNCL MEV kits that I have had sat waiting for the last three month's or so.

I have just finished refurbishing a full 1/1 scale Dr Who Robots of Death head this evening for a friend, and it was taking all the space up on my workbench, but being as that is now out of the way, I can start the MEV kits, and I can do the Nuclear Waste cannisters for my cargo Eagle to boot.

Things are looking up.

If you are building the Captain Scarlet version, watch out for the decals - "Martian" is most likely spelled wrong. You have to swap the "i" and "a" around.

It is also a bit on the long side. If I had noticed when I built mine I would probably have reduced the length. Probably have problem fitting in the number of wheels then.

Tony, I posted pictures of the two I built around two years ago mate, its an old thread.

See the Thunderbird and Captain Scarlet galleries on my web site, link in the sig....

As to building, its straight forward enough, but watch out for the points mentioned by Keith, and the hinges for the bay doors are fragile too.

Or to put it another way Tony, just like a mate stated on another forum I frequent, 'you need to read the all text as well as looking at the pictures'.
