AMT Shuttle Tydirium
« on: May 17, 2012, 08:52:39 AM »
Here I want to share with the fellow troopers a stalled work-in-progress. Stalled for the moment because this kit lacks some detail especially on the wings that I'll be kit bashing from WW-2 tanks and planes. This is a very humble kit with some 'warpage' but with lots of potential if not rushed and that's exactly what I'm doing.

I've been to the SW exhibit twice and the on-screen prop has a bent neon tube to depict the in-flight glow. From Home Depot I've got a battery operated 4'' closet neon lamp to get both, the neon tube and circuit board.









Light leak test



An it passed the test!!
Now waiting for some part donors from other kits on the bench. Promise troopers, you'll see it finished doing flybys around these forums  ;)

Once again Uncle George returns to light up our life!  :) ;D 8)
There will come a time when your training ends. There will come a day when you have learned all the lessons, when all my knowledge of the dark side will be yours. On that day you will challenge me for the title of Master, and only one of us will survive the encounter.
