    Each model is different as some model kits only have a couple of hundred parts and others over 1000 parts, so just the building can take some time before even starting the painting and weathering process. This kit had 420 parts, i don't know the exact time from start to finish but probably 20 hours +. I just do a few hours at a time whenever i get the chance over the course of a week or two for each model.

    Thanks Andy, as much as I would like to keep all of these models due to lack of space a lot of them are sold (this helps fund my other collections). I really enjoy building the models but just can't keep all. Aside from collecting fuzes I also love anything and everything "cutaway" so space is limited.
