Why have you been without power all week?

Fires in Norcal. The utility company is turning off power to prevent fires. Also there's been a 76,000 acre fire on my front door (it felt like) and my area has been in a mandatory evac zone until today..

Yep, been getting reports from friends back in the Santa Rosa area for the last few days.  You guys all stay safe!

 

Bolt, that looks awesome, by the way.

Sorry to hear about the drama Bolt. But I think you'll be okay WRT the deadline. I have put a poll up with some proposed deadline extensions but also the option to not extend it. Unless there are some cruel folks out there only in it for themselves I think we will be able to give you more time.

 

Good luck and stay safe.

Still no power today.. it's getting old. 

Anyway, isn't the deadline for the comp TODAY? I'm going to finish this project either way and will post progress. Once i have power...

Here's my nearly completed entry.  Bugger the rain! My airbrush set up is outdoors right now, so i haven't been able to matt finish and apply water slides. So close! Could use some more detail and finish work, but it can also be like icing a cake, lol. 

So here it is. Apologies for my lack of lighting and photography skills.

I will be posting more pics of this and  past work on  , as well as my finishing touches. This is my first resin kit and it's been very satisfying so far.

Cheers

Hi Bolt. Well that was a surprising scheme. Seems like a heck of a lot to take on as your first resin kit. I've only done simple ones so far. Lots of nice details and looking good so far.

Thanks @arbit  Ya, it's a bit ambitious lol. I like the shard camo look . I will do a Hasegawa super strike VF in the same scheme, eventually, as i like custom squadrons.

I've really been looking forward to this one, dude.  Please keep posting pics!  :good:

Looks like the missile hatches, the Strike cannons, and the head is articulated, eh?

Thanks man! Yes those are all articulated points. My only gripe with this beautiful kit is the oversized shoulders have an  extruded rectangular-ish piece that fits into the side body and reduces the normal Hasegawa range of movements for the arms. The piece fills gaps nicely and looks  good, but i would rather have more range of motion. Guess i could modify it, but I'm gonna focus on total completion first.

Also note the custom thruster nozzle i added to the side shoulders ;)
