Woot! Got me a New toy, a Revell Pelican. This is a 1/100 snap-tite kit.
The kit is clean of flash and already separated from the sprue, it goes together fairly easily in about 5mins
It is HUGE! Here it is next to the resin Dark Horse version. Now I see them together I was way off in guessing the scale of the DH version, its tiny compared to the 1/100 kit
The interior is moulded with jump-seats etc, so could be painted up.
In summary, its a nice kit, goes together easily, seems to have a decent amount of detail and is rugged enough for a 'game piece'. In fact, wargamer-minor has been putting it through its paces, and so far its holding up well.
Time to get some more figs painted!
