I think for that money I'd want something a little more accurate... you ever seen amalgam models? They even do the carbon fibre weave in 1/4 scale!!

That is unbelievably crude in its execution!!!! 90% of the details are completely wrong!! These are a little smaller, but what do you think I could have got for these at auction? /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Hmmm, you know, it would be kind fun to build one that size and do it right! /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/banana.gif /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/hammer.gif /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/banana.gif

The variations in the sense of scale and the detailing for something that size just don't cut it do they?? For that money the buyer could have a real one for sure!

....And they wouldn't have to hide it from the grandkids, and worry about it falling off the mantlepiece.

Yup, I took that picture in 2004 (I think), then Morris turned it into that cool avatar.

Respect!
