SMA Big Spring Contest Build
Entry: Ghostbusters Ecto-1 from Polar Lights
Builder: James "LrdSatyr8" Davis

Ok all here's my entry for the Big Spring contest. The Ecto-1 from Polar Lights. It appears to be a snap-together, however, that won't stop me from making this puppy look outrageous. I've got BIG plans for this one! :) Anyway, here are my sprue photos. None of the bags are open and are still sealed as you can see in the images. I hope the view of my cell phone shows that the date is March 1st, 2013 and is legable. This is the first time I've ever entered any model building contest so hopefully I won't be too outdone by some of the talent here. Not sure if I should enter this in the automotive or the sci-fi catagory yet thou. Not sure when I have to decide. But here's the photos, so you can see.














Good luck to everyone! :)

I like this kit! "Who you gonna call?" G-H-O-S-T B-U-S-T-E-R-S! Big plans? Does it involve a large Marshmellow man figurine? I hope so!! :)

Will you be de-chroming? I have a different version of this kit and am wondering if that's a good direction to take.

Also, you may want to edit your images and reduce their size. That's what causing the very slow loading for this thread.


Let me know if you need help with that.

Lighting this one will be a challenge, but I know you can do it after that R2D2.

Are the black windows flat? If so, you can buy some clear styrene to replace it.

I'm not sure, but was thinking of replacing them. Got some great ideas I've been mulling over... Here's a hint... PPs, PR, GTs, and of course... OBD! I'll let you figure that out! Hehehhehehe:)
