Really love the Waldo, I like it much more than the remora, I really like the compact nature of it. Great work on those engines Mike they look great, I'll be following with interest (and saving some money!)

Thanks! Yeah, the idea was to capture the essence of his larger rounded ships, but as a compact and affordable kit. Although we do have a few VERY limited monster-sized McQue kits in he works.

Yeah both those steps are really nice. I've just picked up the AK "engines and stuff" kit to supplement my stash of MIG things so it's nice to have the step-by-step, thanks!

Mike,

That's some of the best weathering I have seen. These are looking fantastic!

Are they going to be three separate models or are you planning a vignette with them?

Can't wait to see more.4
