Thank you guys for support.
It takes 9 months of my life and was a quite hard stuff to do.
Now I'm very happy! :D

Pu_rplecow and all, please consider that in the picture with parts there's only the master parts, so one leg and one arm. So you have to moltiplicate x 2 the parts in the "C" and "D" rectangles.

For maxwinamp, Pleiades, braxat and Captain Obvious, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I'm very happy you appreciate my endeavors.
Yes, I hope it will be casted, above all without problems, so I'm taking easy to not commit mistakes.
Some general informations could be:
the kit will be composed more or less by 170 resin parts. Completed it will be 26 cm tall. It's quite big and complicated guys!
I hope I will be able speaking about prices and more detailed informations at the end of december/january.
In the meantime I can't wait to painting it!! :oops: So I'm drawing some photoshop camos!! :)
Thanks again :)
ZLuca

Luca, I can only echo what's been said here.  THAT is a masterpiece.   Incredible, wonderful work.

Love the camo schemes too!

Never!!  We need a Briegel MkII.  Bigger, meaner, stronger, faster!! :lol:

Well, I don't think it's possible after all, this is as close to perfection as I have seen.  I can type up more praises, but I digress... :wink:

Couldn't help bringing this up.. this thread is going to be the first to reach 4000 views..

Looks like I didn't think about the 2 hands 2 legs part.. Goodness! Still, Its amazing. I can still remember the time you showed us the legs. It was like yesterday and now its completed. Congratulations! I hope you get a reliable caster and nothing bad happens and you find your back with many knives stuck inside..  :mad:

All the best with the sales of this kit!

Congrats you did it ! You did it great.
I love the cockpit seat, it looks like Alien design or Juan Gimenez style.
Have fun painting it.

a very clean cast!  I'm excited.  I'm just hoping that it won't be too expensive as I do really want this amazing kit scuplted by a master.  8)

I think this is the first time I saw the shoulder armor on the kit itself, looks good!

It's impossible not to chime in with what's already been said here. The Briegel looks just stunning. I first looked at it and said, "There's no way I could afford what it must be worth." And then I looked at it again and thought, "If it comes in cheap enough, I might be able to make an excuse (to myself) to buy it." And now? Now, I'm thinking "How many opportunities will there be to pick up something like this?"

My credit card is giving me a dirty look. I have to go now...

What are the chances of doing a plastic cast of this?  Sorry if this is a stupid question, I know absolutely nothing about the process involved, but I'm with Ezechiel, I don't do resin kits (actually, that should read, I can't to resin kits  :( )

Im sure Zluca would love to give us humble folks an injection kit of that masterpeice but realisticaly I dont think it would be possible. :(
Speaking from my machinist background, you would have to scan the model into CAD, break it into all the seperate peices and add all the hollow spaces and pegs, then design a sprue tree for the parts. After that you'd transfer it to another program and have a machine cut out a mold for it in metal. Mold making is very complicated and expensive keep in mind.
After that they would take the molds and put them into an injection molding machine to create the finished plastic parts.
It just would not be feasible for a small run of kits. Each kit would have cost hundreds upon hundreds of dollars just to make up for the mold creation costs and other fee's they would charge for such a thing.

That being said, this is a beautiful kit and Im glad to have had the privilage of seeing the pics that were posted here and to be able to watch as it was built up. :)

Thank you all guys!!! :D
I'm so happy you like it.. honestly at this moment I can't see how it is really this model, too long I work on it!
However I hope it comes out good and I hope to not disappoint you.
As soon as I have all box parts  in my hands, I'll post here news (I'm waiting decals and color prints) with final trade price.
See you soon
and many, many thanks again to Michael and all fellas for your sweet support! :oops: :roll:
