I  men,

2 months ago i began this project...The idea is to make a credible kit with that cheap kit:

http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN23159

my first inspiration is the stark jegan:

I use some different parts  of other kits as you can see on tose pictures:

The final result will look like this:

Lots of work to do again...i must sanding and sanding and  sanding.... :mad:

I realise that this project is very hard for my skill, and i don"t know if i  will  acheve it correctly!

And I don't choose the sheme color yet

MOD EDIT: Thanks for wasting my time with fixing your oversized images.

looks great so far, I always loved the jegans, all I have to say is, get ri of those straws, I can already see that they are beginning to warp, try to find some plastic tubing to replace it with.

Agreed, that was the one thing that really stood out to me also.

Try and get some nice styrene tubing, it would be perfect for what you are doing and they will look 100x better. Good luck on this!

Sorry for the images...I thought that i could put them directly like some guys here...Now i know that a simple link is preferable.

Sorry for wasting your precious time.

You can post images, just make sure they're no wider than 600 pixels. It's in the rules. :wink:

You shouldn't have any problem with using styrene. I'm currently working on something that uses 7/32 styrene tube to house missiles from a 1:72 Black Hawk helicopter. The missiles aren't ideal, but they'll work and the walls of the styrene tube are thin enough to look "right".
