Well it's taken a while, but I've finally got around to putting the Space Jockey together.
It has gone fairly well so far...despite the fact there were gaps in some key areas. Nothing a generous batch of Milliput couldn't fix. I really am falling in love with that stuff. It's very easy to use and, man, is it ever strong.
I'm still not really sure I like the whole vinyl kit thing. It seems to take a lot of fiddling around to get things to fit and be symmetrical.
