My first reaction was "dear God look at the size of that thing" followed shortly thereafter by "man, what a pain the ass that is going to be to keep the dust off!". Damn my practical side Smile

I'm assuming the X-Wings and TIE Fighters are Fine Molds versions and that the DV TIE is a custom from a TIE Interceptor perhaps? I wish Fine Molds would get into gear and pump out another bunch of kits that desperately need making. I know the DV TIE is on the way in a couple of months but I would love to see their versions of the following:

TIE Bomber - c'mon, this one shouldn't be that hard to do!
AT-AT - this would be a good one for them to do as people would buy multiple kits for dioramas
B-Wing
Tantive IV

When it comes to the personal fighters I much prefer them in 1/48 scale and while there are a few kits already in this scale I'm disappointed that vehicles such as the Y-Wing (which is just begging for the ultra detail that could be achieved in a larger scale) and the TIE Interceptor and DV TIE are not.

I'd also be over the moon if they were to produce a 1/12 "Master Class" kit for the X-Wing and TIE Fighter. Don't bother me with details such as 'price' I just want them Smile

wow what an amazing project, i love all the cool lighting around the hangar bay. But you would definitely need an entire room permanently dedicated to model making on this scale. You've gotta admire this guys commitment to his hobby, awesome, just awesome :clap: :clap:

Wouldn't it be ironic if his kid threw a marble in the exhaust port and the whole thing came undone?
