as far as the cost goes you'll be looking at $2000 for the kit and the weapons.
I don't know what it would cost to ship to the UK, but Kerry will be able to tell you that, i guess.
Call me stupid , but what do you measn by 'going IC'?
If you go electric you'll be looking roughly at another $4000 for everything, maybe a little more.
If going electric it makes the apint job real easy, just ultra flat camo from Krylon, because there are no fuel issues with the paint then, and i think i spend only about $80 on paint and primer!
That is not counting a multitude of tools/machines i used and allready had, and from there it'll take time...
I started building in July, but only through the week in the evenings and recently i lost my job, which gave me the chance to work on it full time!
All in all i'd say that working on it in the evenings and the weekends it would take you about 8 - 10 months to finish it, depending on how far you want to go with detail and/or moving parts.
So far i have not gone overboard on accessoiries detail but i probably will later on so that'll add more time to it.
Just study/outline and placing the rivets took me roughly 30 hours all tohether.
I used the rivet kit from Starwood models and that works really well, after a little "training" with it.
If you have any more questions just post them here and i'll be happy to try to answer them.
