Happy Birthday To Me

Yep, the days come around again. Planned on taking it easy, which i am, and - good timing here - two kits arrived today.
First up is the present from my Mum and is Deckards Blaster from Blade Runner. Had one of these back in the early 90's which was a solid lump of resin. This isn't, as you can see by the amount of parts, and far more accurate, having the clear orange hand grips plus LED's and wiring. It comes with a pretty comprehensive instruction sheet, which is going to be needed.
Also landing is a small version of the Nostromo. Always wanted a kit of this craft but the Halcyon is just too darn dear and too darn big (SO wish Fine Molds would have a go at it) and the Konami is tiny. So, at about 5 or 6 inches, this'll make for a nice project. It might be small but there's tons of parts and going to do a lot of research to work out what goes where (oh, the hardship)
