1984 Tomy Lensman Striker

Recommended Posts

Finally finished this old kit saved by Nick's suggestion to use more liquid cement to separate a badly attached wing. Because there weren't enough things to make this go wrong, I retrofitted an F-whatever aftermarket cockpit and sawed the canopy into two pieces. (Did you know that really old clear-tinted plastic likes to flake/shatter when you're sawing it?) There are things I would like to do over (yet again), but I've already invested too much time in this one and need to move on. :)

I like it! That looks really good. I can't see anywhere that had any issues. Brilliant work!

Thanks, Mark. I believe almost every assembly has been stripped and repainted or reassembled at least once. Need to figure out what's next now...

nice job on an ancient kit. I have several old builds like that that need a new lease on life.

Actually this was a new build, but I had a number of do-overs. I did get a Bronze for it at Wonderfest a couple of weeks ago which was unexpected, but I guess not all of the defects I was aware of weren't readily visible. :)
