I've never tried it before either, but almost all of the armor plating is straight lines and flat pieces; nothing fancy--measure twice, cut once, sand to fit as necessary.
At this point I doubt you'll find a ready-to-build kit. First, the film's over a year old. Second, it was only moderately successful at the box office. Third, films that aren't marketed towards younger audiences usually don't generate any tie-in merchandising (us old folks don't like to hand over our hard-earned cash). Fourth, and perhaps most important, generating an injection kit from start to finish is very expensive, and I can't see AMT, Round 2, or Revell thinking a kit like this would generate enough sales to cover their expenses, let alone turn a profit. I mean, look at how long it took for Revell to reissue the Tijuana Taxi and Rommel's Rod kits--two kits that were in high demand, already had a huge fan base, and would clearly generate a return on their investment. I'm not saying it can't
happen, but it's unlikely.
Of course, if you do
find a kit, be sure to let us know.
