3/20/2010 - This has long been on my "get someday" list, and "someday" finally got here. Reshape's kit gives you a choice of building the time machine as either a scale miniature of George's vehicle, or building the tabletop test model that George used to send a cigar off to the future. That version would of course need a fancy display case too.

The parts are very finely cast in general, with little flash or pour stubs to clean up. One exception is the 3 red discs near the top of the vertical spindle of the dish armature. They will probably have to be replaced. Other "might have-tos" include a very careful clean-out or replacement of the brass beadwork on the chair side.

The decals include all the fancy filigree markings for the dish, generator, and console, though a "full-size" build will need another decal - the "mfd by H. George Wells" marking that's on the display panel.
