…decals done, almost ready for weathering. I have to add the underwing engines (edit: done) and the sensor turret under the nose still. The doors will remain loose until I make a decision on the diorama setting.

…I pre-ordered the ‘Mule’ and the TAD-65 ‘Hornet’ dropship a couple of weeks ago and they arrived this morning. I have to say that for moderately priced plastic kits they are excellent. Design and engineering are so good that the images you see below…
