Ok, I am very excited about this. What I have in my hands is Bruce's new 1/32 Cylon Raider from Moebius. This was because when it came out, not many were excited by it until he held it in his hands and took a picture. Then everyone realised that its big and yes, the mad rush was on.
Luckily, Bruce got his from shipped and so, I can say that he is one of the few proud owners to get this Cylon Raiders first here. And he is lending it to me for R&D. You see, we want to light this model up and the prospect of doing it in a very small space was a challenge. Anyway, this is the preliminary examination of the model kit:
|Although the box of the Raider is the same size of the Viper, it is noticeable thinner.|
|But when you held the model in your hands, you realised that it is very big.|
How did Moebius cram that into the box?
|My plan was to have White LEDs for the thrusters and by the looks of this instruction sheet, it is possible.|
Except that you need some sort of support when mounting the LED inside.
|The real challenge lies in the head of the Raider. Stay tuned for more progress notes.|
