Your r2 is looking great ! I imagine this is quite hard to do with all the fiddly parts and that ? do you think someone who is completey useless at model kits would be able to achieve a full build ?

Anyone can build this to be honest. There's approx 15-20mins of assembly each month (4 issues), and each issue has detaied instructions on how each part goes together. Only a screwdriver (supplied), needlenose pliers and a bit of superglue is required.

Only real part that some people where having trouble with, was the dome frame. The parts had to be put into the right place otherwise the screw holes wouldn't line up.

Currently awaiting issues 65-68 to arrive and I'll post up a few more progress pics.
Wanted - Instruction sheets and Stormtrooper cardbacks preferably....
