I turned to this as a little mojo pick-me-up, after my recent tribulations with a certain Camel and it's rigging....

Build time 20 minutes, then a couple of evenings to paint it. Astounding level of detail for the size; 95mm length overall :shock:

I painted the edge details in Humbrol Gunmetal, the top and bottom faces in Humbrol gloss white, then a coat of Tamiya Smoke all over and finally a coat of Flory Dark Dirt as a wash.

That's come out a treat. Nice 'starry' photography too.

I ordered them from eBay, but the listing has been taken down by eBay.....I found these for sale on Amazon UK, shipping from Japan; cost £8.20 inc shipping :shock:
I'm sure there will be US based sellers/stockists

Very nicely done indeed, Iggie. The kit has some lovely looking detail that has really popped out during the painting and weathering process. I've never really been a big fan of Star Wars and therefore the subject matter doesn't interest me hugely but I can appreciate a great bit of modelling and indeed a decent looking kit when I see it 8-)

Thanks Shaun!
To be honest the kits build themselves really such is the quality of the engineering and the detailing..... add some washes and a bit of Tamiya Smoke and there you have it! :-D
