Looking good so far, John.

Thanks!  The only bad part of this model is the cloak....

It does look better, but that red stripe gave me trouble.  The next video is all about it....

Get a can of spray starch- I've seen action figure cape's posed in incredible ways using starch.

The chrome shouldn't be a problem. I can only watch the video silently since I am at work, but I imagine the parts are all undergated like the Threepio model is. Just give it a coating of gloss clear and it'll fix the problem of leaving fingerprints all over the model while working on it.

Good to know, the cape doesn't pose too bad on its own, but with spray starch, well, I can do better than the static pose.....

Thanks for the video

You definitely need a good pair of sprue cutters for that one. I had the same problems with the C-3PO kit if I wasn;t careful when cleaning up the parts

I do have a good set, and I should pass that along in the next video.
