Not exactly a prop, not exactly a replica, but I didn´t figure where better to share this build

@Mods : feel free to move to any better fitting section


After building

* Hachette´s Black Pearl
* DeAgostini´s Millennium Falcon
* Eaglemoss´s BTTF Delorean

I am starting yet another partwork build. Originaly this build is NOT officially available over here in Austria and doing a subscription to DeAgo UK and have them send over didn´t work this time, I was forced to keep looking for alternate sources.
Over a FB-group, another UK builder, who due lack of time didn´t start the build but collected all 100 issues, made me an offer to an way awesome deal I couldn´t say no.

And after only 3 days after I hit the PayPal button, two boxes, about 20 kilo of parts and magazines arrived with DPD, and including the carrier costs, still only half the price DeAgo asks for the full set.



I felt like a 10 years old boy at X-mas when digging through the pile

And I started the build the same evening with the first 10 issues.





So, progress after issue #1 - 10 looks like this





I have no plans to do any modifications, except adding a weathered finish later.

Just because the weather outside is just "right" today, I just finished another 10 issue bundle, so here we have #41 - 50 :p:grin:




All together, progress through half of the build




Looks like the clouds wont rip apart outside, might do another 10....maybe B):grin:

You guessed right, a new day, new progress update :grin::grin:
Thinking of it, THIS will be the way to do on any future partwork project ( *cough* Hachette´s T-800 *cough* Eaglemoss´s Ecto-1 *cough* )
Buy everything at once and having a heck of a building marathon B)

#61 - 70




First look inside the head




and the final progress up to #70

Almost there B);)

#81 - 90





The finished front panels, hm :confused:
... I feel the need for some customizing coming up here. I DO NOT plan to add some LED´s to the toolpits, but they look pretty undetailed. Might have to take a look what my spare-parts-box comes up with. There should be some random parts and cables left over from the BTTF Delorean. Maybe some spare parts from my collection of BANDAI-kits could come in handy here too.B)





and the final progress up tp #90

Congrats on getting R2 built. I've enjoyed following your posts here and look forward to seeing how the weathering turns out.
