Nice work! Looks like our own Falk has some competition. I can't wait to see this project finished.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.

Mmh yeah... Bof, not impressed... *lol, how do I sound when trying to be pedant ? :P *

I was joking right^^ It's surely not the way I am, and his work is damn great (I mailed him once for congratulations and a few questions^^).
And the whole backpack and stuff... Lot of work :P

I wonder which technic is the most productive though. He's doing it with splines, while I do it polygon by polygon.

Though the spline technic is clearly faster for very technical stuff (a gundam for instance), this may cuz' struggle for some mechanical but soft parts like there is on the MHs (well on the other hand it's a real pain in the ass when I have to dig a rigorous hole right in the middle of a curved part without creating ugly artefacts on the surface... Like the little lines near the arm's hole on the Napalm LED. It's almost out of question to do it with the technic I use if the part isn't totally flat).

Boo... makes me think I'll have to finish the Phantom one day... Before the sun dies if possible... :roll: :wink:

I would really love to see it finished Falk. It was looking very very good the last time I saw you post progress on it. :)
