  1. Bet I can do the rigging.

  2. Ditto at least going to try hehehe

  3. Ask Larry Schmidt about his Acme Invisible Rigging. That, or hire a spider.

  4. Dayum I was going to comment on the rigging but I'm WAY late

  5. 1/144th Photo-Etch...? You gotta be kidding! That's gonna be a bigger PITA than the rigging (maybe)

  6. Ahhh Grasshopper. Patience remember wax on wax off. It will come to you when you least expect it.
    And yes photo etch will take pics when i start in next day or 2

  7. 1/144? Vincent you're a better man than me to try such models in that scale. Are you planning on hand painting or airbrushing?

  8. Vince, Roy Brown told somebody interviewing him it was a vermillion red. I can't remember where I saw that, but it stuck.

  9. Can someone move this post to works in progress.
    Didn't see it till now, sorry for posting in wrong place
