I suppose, given what it could’ve been, 400quid isn’t bad. I mean, it’s still 400 quid, but I suspect the 1 grand isn’t too far off the mark these days. It’s certainly more than I’d ever consider paying for a mini, of any kind, but it’s equally certainly a lovely piece to have in your collection 👍🏻

It’s the second most expensive mini I own - cheaper than the Warhound Titan, more expensive than Smaug.

blimey. I hadnt realised warhounds were so pricey. I have a revenant, and it was nowhere near that much.

Into the scrag end of 2020, and it's finished!

The finished article, in all its '90s glory.

A frontal view. Looks like I got the wings symmetrical from here. :)

The engines and the wiring behind the air brakes. One of the few spot colours on the model to break up the grey.

And finally, the weight of the thing:

Congratulations on getting that beautiful beast of a model assembled and painted. It looks magnificent (and incredibly heavy). :D

It’s so pretty!
