It's like watching a child grow up! ... pretty sure that came out wrong. It's been amazing to follow this build and see all the challenges you faced and overcame. The Racer looks fantastic!

Man I am so close to the end now I'm really forcing myself not to rush and screw it up!!

Okay so I got the decals on the side fins, the micro sol is still drying in these photos, I'll seal them with future along with the ones on the body



And I also did the missiles, this has been a behind the scenes headache since day 1! Got the missile tips ground down okay on my make shift lathe, but cutting the thin tube sections I needed was something I have been putting off and off, after numerous cheap tools and failed solutions I decided to cut them by hand and if they aren't perfect so be it.
As it turns out they weren't bad at all, so I trimmed down the missile tipes got them glued in plce, put a small ball of apoxie sculpt in the bottom so I could fiddle with the position and get them paralell with the tube, left them to dry then primed them along with the base panel of the rear turret which still needs paint.





I have now glued on the fron energy cannons, the shield generator dome and removed the masking tape from the windows.





All thats left to do is to paint the base plate of therear turret, then glue it in place, glue the side fins in place, seal all decals with future, paint and attach the missiles and then attach to the stand.

So I think the next thing on the board to do with the racer will be the final pics in the complete gallery!  :-)

Thanks for looking guys hopefull more real soon

Thanks Alty! No, not a dio, its just going to be on a stand.

All elements are complete now, just needs to be glued together, stuck on the stand then its final photo's time! Everythings pretty hectic at home, haven't had a chance to get any decent time in on it, but It should be all done and dusted at the weekend (fingers crossed!)

It's looking just great with the decals, I'm sorry I haven't been commenting for a while but I've been away for three weeks.

Can't wait to see the finished result now :)

I laught out loud, when a 3 yr old boy came yesterday to me with this toy of my son and said: "It's broken - whe are the wings?"

So seeing more in these shapes seems common among the free minded, I think?!

Sorr for spamming in your thead - I thought it was funny :)

The booms sit flush now - looks how it should :)
I like the pod engines and am looking forwad led bulb to see how you blend them in.
Any wings back there?


That looks no bad to meet. You just need to change them to led tail lights
