Excellent build!

I have only one question: what are those green rods you're using to hold the small parts?

Micro Stix

Thanks for reading!

Those rods are called "Micro Stix," adhesive tips for holding delicate model parts that I got from the local hobby shop. One of the few new additions to my arsenal of hobby tools I've picked up this year. There are two adhesive strengths (blue = heavy hold, green = quick release) and come 16 to a pack. They're disposable but depending on how you stick parts to them they can last up to a couple of uses before they stop bonding.

One thing I learned with this kit is don't stick two parts to them at once, the elasticity made one of the nozzle parts go flying when I pulled it away.

Another great build. I

Another great build. I really, really want to see what you can do with a perfect grade. Or I really want to buy a perfect grade after you build it.

I'm actually working on a Perfect Grade right now, nothing built yet but I'll post it when it's ready, but I do have my last Perfect Grade here. 00-Raiser!
