Federation Pursuit Ship

Blimey, my workbench is full now.

This is the Federation Pursuit Ship from Blakes 7, produced by Titan Find, mastered by Alfred Wong and decals by J T Graphics.I knew it wasn't studio scale and had feared it might be tiny but its a respectable size.Nice bit of casting, detail is crisp but there is some clean-up to be done. No airholes or stepping problems, just the pouring lugs at the rear of the main wings need sawing off, there's tons of that paper-like flashing and a bit of problem with a mis-cast on the main wing sides.All easily to deal with though.Part fit is excellent, with the main wings slotting into the body very tightly and staying there so well its a job to remove them.The upper and lower fins have nice locating grooves to aid in positioning.The decals look nice and comprehensive.If i've one gripe - and its a very small one - its that the instuction sheets photos are too small to tell what's what. Much better to go on the Titan Find site and print them out there.
