1/72 RB26 A-Wing & FP A-Wing

This project was so quick that I didn't even have time to think about taking pictures! I got this lovely little kit done in less than 2 days and I enjoyed every second of it.
This is NOT the Fantastic Plastic kit.

Sorry, I know these pictures are terrible - They don't show the details off very well.
This kit has ALLOT of very small subtle details and the casting is amazing! Possibly the best resin kit I've ever seen.
The sloppy dark gray area is completely hidden when the canopy is on. I figure, why mask it if it's an area that won't be seen?

In other news, I finished re-scribing the bottom of the B-Wing and next I'll be detailing it up. I'm hoping to have it 100% done by April. (I work at a very slow pace)

Also, I picked up REL's 1/72 Clone Wars Y-Wing and have cleaned it up a little bit. I'm very excited to get started on this kit! It's a real beauty.

A superb finish on a superb kit. I totally agree with your comments on the Fantastic Plastic version - I'd rather scratch my own than buy theirs.
I've been trying to get one myself but ResinIlluminati aren't letting any new members join so I can't even enquire!
What's next in the pipeline?

I have a chance to buy this kit, but I am wondering what a reasonable price would be to pay for this kit? Can you let me know privately via email?
