Liberator - getting started

So, this is the main body, to which you can see i've been cutting out tiny blocks to add in-line with each of the vanes on the front part.
You can also get a good idea of just how small this kit is. I was prepared for that, as i remember my last one real well, but what i wasn't prepared for (think i must've blanked it) is the sheer fiddliness of cutting out and putting on the microscopic brass etched probes.
Dreading that.
You can also see quite a prominent seamline. That's not a prob as the Solar Panels will be covering up the front section and the struts that hold the "weapon pods" rather cleverly are attached to a base which totally covers up the rear section.

I have two of these waiting to be built, but the fiddliness has terrified me! I really should try one day.
