Just got the kit in the mail yesterday. The kit itself looks FANTASTIC!.
But no instructions came with the kit.

Anybody else get instructions?

I think I can figure out where everthing goes. But it would be nice to be sure.
Painting tips wouldn't hurt either. :p

You got it, Andy! It is a Shadow scout ship from B5.
Sort of a space equivalent to a submarine.

BTW, the crisis has been averted. The instructions are available online at Hobbylink Japan.
Hobby Search Japan has scans of the instructions in their listing of the kit. Go to the URL that features Gundam Etc. under"Others" in the category:Other. It also has scans of the parts themselves.


Now that I have a chance to actually finish the model I will put it in the assembly line. :D

Pictures as soon as possible!

Hi,

just wanted to mention that I also purchased this kit from Hobby Link Japan.

http://www.hlj.com/product/wavtl-02

I received it yesterday and I second what's been said before, it's a beautiful and very detailed looking kit! Also, delivery was very fast once the kit became availiable in stock again.

Mine came complete with instructions!

Got mine off of ebay.

Looks to be a nice, little kit. It's next on my list of things to do. I'm thinking it'll be a good two to three night buildup and a nice change from all of the technical mishmash of RC sub building.

I'm thinking that I'll be taking some liberties with the paint, though. I really don't like that pearlescent white paint job. I'll be going for a more realistic rusty metal finish. Maybe its what the LXG Nautilus will look like twenty years from the movie :D .

Bob,

Must you make everything look rusted and worn out?!

You'll be weathering the missus next! :p

Now, now... no need for that, Andy.

Actually, I got that kit off the shelf last night after posting here and getting interested in taking a look at it.

This is a superb kit! The fit and finish is superb. Flash is virtually non-existent. Every part fits perfectly with the next. My only gripe was an ommission in the instructions in regards to the upper screw housings. They are in the box, however there are no instructions as to where or how to mount them. I figured it out on my own, of course, but it's still a pretty glaring ommission.

Total assembly time: 1.5hrs, including puttying of seams.

I've revised my paint plans, too (satisfied, Andy?), to be closer to the movie job. I'm hoping to take a look tonight for a neat pearlescent white at the local hobby shop.

You will, however, still see a bit of weathering, just to satisfy my need for rust! :D
