Finally, once again I was outbid on an Atomic Models Aries 1B resin kit that came up for bids....   (surprise, surprise!)

So in a fit of despair I bought this paper kit of the famous moon shuttle instead....  I've never dealt with any of these b4, so I have no clue what all to expect, but when I think of the $250 price difference I'm sure a little mistake here or there won't matter as much.

Supposedly builds up to almost 8" and the sample photos look perty good.....     :b

I'd scan each sheet so you can reprint on card stock in case you mess up.
Interior looks like it might be hard on the eyes to put together.

Not a bad idea on the scanning....

The only instructions that came with this is a URL to a blog in a foreign language I cannot read.....   FUN!

I had the 1/29 X-Wing tagged for many months Kenny.....    The UK seller was asking $72 + S/H. Then he suddenly offered it (and still does) for about $56 + free shipping.

(Looks like the price is trickling up again).
