Cool I, for one, am not impressed...

a real Daredevil would have declared his intent to purchase the beast. Out loud. Perhaps while his mate slept soundly... I'd suggest between the hours of 0100 and 0400. And you may want to go outside first.

Seriously, what a brute of a kit... I'm not sure how you would counter balance the aluminium components - without a LOT of rear ballast, the whole thing would bludgeon itself to the ground in a nose heavy thump.

How many BR-52s does it take to run this bad boy about? (Edit - I just saw the new stuff string... Eight!!!?)

So any other news- has the initial titilation worn of. How's about some more impressions on the kit, Sir. Thanks.

Hi guys,

I'm Jeremy and i'm new to Planet Armor. I bought one Dora as well.

While it does contain quite a few parts, most of it goes to the 4 "carriages". The main superstructure shouldn't take too long since most of the pieces are big and doesn't require too much clean up. Also, most parts are already simplified. If it was under Dragon, i'd think that one carriage alone will consist of 300 parts.

While there are ejector pin marks, they are shallow and easy to deal with, though the seams are more difficult than usual to scrape off due to the nature of the plastic.

The only 2 complaints i have about this kit is that it's some parts are extremely greasy, so a good soak in a detergent is a must. I plan on soaking them after they are built in sub-assemblies cause re-bagging them can be very tedious. The other problem is the material in which this kit is made of. It's not the regular plastic, so the Gunze, Revell Contacta and Tamiya cements do not work.

In some other forums, Ambroid Proweld, Plastruct Plastic Weld Cement and Tenax cement are recommended but they are unavailable here to me, so i need to look for another solution. I have tried the 2 part epoxy putty, but i'll be more comfortable with an adhesive that fuses the parts together.

If only it was made of regular plastic like what we are used to, it should be a dream to build.
