Johannes i've worked with other Voyager sets and was not near as happy with them as say Aber and Griffon. The thing is Aber is $90usd for about the same thing that Voyager has for $31usd and Griffon does not have a set for this kit.

I just noticed it's been two years no that's three years since I bought this kit but i've been putting it off because of the open top and the gray paint scheme. I've got a couple of open tops under my belt now but this will still be my first gray paint. It's about time I stepped up to get-er-done.

Thanks for stoppin by man

Can't wait to see it in action Tony! Lots of nice AM goodies. Its amazing to me how much different PE sets vary in quality, but having said that, I think sometimes they can be a bit of overkill where the kit parts are perfectly adequate with a little extra love...
Keep it up!

Good Afternoon, Tony.

Lovely subject you've got started here! Grey is one of those colors that lends itself to being very expressive. Have fun with it.

Rick

I sure am happy there are folks out there that will be interested in seeing what I can do with this because i've got high hopes myself.

As Forrest once said "I sure hope I don't let you down."

Howdy
Trumpeters QA is lacking big time. I found this while unpacking the sprues.
I would say it got caught in the mold. This damage is on the front plate between the drive sprockets.






As you can see the panel was almost ripped off. The upper left side corner (where the dark marks are) was bent inward at about 90 degrees. There was no way this damage could have been over looked but was packaged anyway. Also there was no damage to the box so this had to have happened before being put in the kit.

I applied a small amount of heat and pulled everything back as close as I could with clamps and glued it back in position. Some filler and a little sanding should take care of the rest.

Pride in your work is dead

im sure you can make good of it Tony if your last kits anything to go by, personally i think trumpeter are very relaxed when it comes to the quailty of their kits, for example my challenger 2 the mold seams were huge and none of the bits fit correctly unlike a Tamiya kit

good luck on the repair job im sure you'll bring it back to a high standard
