Excellent reissue of the kit! I love the simple design almost a time machine/Doctor Who feel to it. I must say Mark McGovern did a Fantastic build up of the kit:thumbsup:! I wanted to focus on the time machine part of the model and omit the strange change feature, there is a few fit problems on the figure and the two halves of the Time machine not a big deal Aves took care of the gaps on the figure, for the two halves I taped it to the base then glued them together. This way kept the halves to match up, after I sanded the seams I cheated and used styrene strip to cover up the seams and it gave the outside some surface detail. next up I added green leds to give the Time Machine a little character:thumbsup:

Cool sg-99, I had ideas of making one of these into a spacecraft of some kind too. Green light makes anything creepier,like the viewport too. What else are you doing to it? Gotta get a new one,had it as a kid,whereabouts unknown. :thumbsup:

I will defiently post pics of the paint up! I will be Alclading the hull this weekend. I wanted to keep it simple on the modifications, the only thing extra I did was cut out the eye vents (so it would not look like a robot) and cut out a new trianular view port:thumbsup:

Wow very impressive build, kinda reminds me of the old comic book Rip Hunter Time Master, only they had a larger sphere if I recall still you did a great job. Karl

That is a great interior on the time machine. The colors and detailing really worked out well and the lights set it off nicely. This might be a kit I want to pick up some day.

Base coat applied, I used Alclad pale gold mixed with a touch of alclad copper. Scrap clear Lexan was used for the windows. Next up some post shading:thumbsup:

The 9 volt is in the dino side! And I did it where all I have to do is lift the Time machine off the base and turn it on or off:thumbsup:
