One of the reasons I take so long to build some kits is that I just get tired of dealing with bad fit, bad parts, bad detail...

So, I've upgraded my Boba Slave 1 from the old MPC kit to the newly-released Fine Molds retool of their Jango Slave 1. Assembly should be a breeze now.

7/16/06 - I was right. Assembled the interior, save for a few pieces to allow access for painting. Sub-assembled the fins - supposedly repulsorlifts - and the main "turkey leg" hull.
