Glad you decided to start a thread for this project. I look forward to it.

Happy Birthday, BTW.

I take it this is the large scale kit.  I have one that I have been puttinh off until I can find a display case for it....a suggestion from my wife who hinted that she liked the kit, which I correctly interpreted as buy it and find a case.

Oh cool!!!

That corrogated surface on the 'legs' looks like it's going to be a pain to putty and sand though. Good luck!!!

Did you manage to get the optional glass dome set?

There is not one for this kit that I'm aware of.

 

Yours is the old, late '90s Polar Lights kit, which is a repop of the old '60s Aurora kit.

Your kit will build into a 6-7 inch robot.

 

 

The newer, 2013?, Moebius kit is bigger. About 12 inches I think. That kit has the glass dome.

And yes, those leg seams are a big pain!
