First inpressions not many parts and the plastic was very thin . The plastic parts are not the best fit and will need plenty of filling especialy around the legs and arms .  I have got to say that it did not turn out that bad afterall , built o.o.t. b  except the leg section which i used gold foil( 2 choc bars :lol: ) this has made the whole model more realistic . this is a big model standing just under 11 inches .

My version, decided to avoid the anti glare visor so I could detail the face. Got to agree with Andy, took a lot of filler and a lot of sanding to get a good fit with the parts. I used Bare metal gold foil for the leg and Tamiya / Humbrol paint to finish it off.

Thanks Andy

Yours is damn good as well, the gold viser is probably more realistic but I needed a bit more practice on faces anyway!

You were quite right gaps in the joints I could have driven a bus through, first time I have used more filler than paint. A fun build all the same!
