I'll be trying to build some kind of mount to make it look passable like it's a Vulcan location. But I don't want to start making promises I cannot keep so early in the game...so to speak.

Totally understandable. The preview and buildup is priority.

I took the time to locate and pull out my old(er) version of the 350 B.O.P.

There is a tangible difference between the two kits- other than the box.

If you'll look closely, and compare- you'll notice that the metal support staff on the right is about twice as long as the one on the left.

That- is the difference. The older kit ALSO came with diecast metal landing gear.

You know, the only reason I didn't buy the first re-release kit is because I assumed the landing gear was plastic... :banghead:

I think my store might still have one so I need to pick it up.

It'll be gone, when you go back.

I can't be the only one that happens to....

Definitely not just you. It either isn't there like I remembered, or was there and someone snatched it. I may not be able to afford it anyway this paycheck either. /sigh.

Getting started. Since detail painting of the other Preview invariably involves me painting a small portion and then letting it dry- it's gonna be stop and go for a bit- thus, this.

First step (after choosing the landed parts 44, 45, 46, and 47)- it's time to give all the parts a good washing to remove the mold release from the surfaces of the parts.
