With the exception of the weapon, I finished assembling the drop pod model. My alignment is every so slightly out. Not enough to cause problems but just enough that all of the doors don’t close perfectly. Even with that small issue, I am very impressed at the level of detail and ingenuity involved in this model. The pieces fit together well and the bits are certainly great for scratchbuilding as evidenced by all the parts on ebay.
I’ve actually been able to pick up another drop pod in bits – although with all the shipping charges it works out to only a slight savings over just buying one from GC-Minis. I’m really looking forward to painting up this model once it warms up enough to prime it.
