In addition to a Metrokab, I'm happy to share news and some photos of an ongoing build of a Randy Cooper Spinner with the light kit from Voodoofx. The Kab is being built by a model builder in WI while the Spinner is being built for me by none other than Randy Neubert himself. The builder in WI also assembled and painted Randy Cooper's Spinner figures. Here are a few photos showing the completed figures (with chopsticks added to Deckard) and ongoing construction of the Spinner.

A few years ago. Randy was offering, at the time, a complete build to his clients. Not anymore, too much time spent on these and not enough time to develop and produce other kits.

To be quite honest, it's not a model for the novice builder either. I'd hate to say that at the risk of deterring someone from buying one of these impressive kits. However, that become apparent upon reading Randy N.'s updates on his work to build the thing. If you're new to the model hobby as I was, you might just be better off finding someone to build it for you. Randy N. came from a referral. I found the person to build the Metrokab and Spinner figures over at Starship Modeler.

Randy N. has completed his build of my Spinner and provided me these pictures and (previously) a video showing a test of a portion of his impressive light kit.

Looks fantastic, congratulations.

The next evolution of these should have some e-cig and fan set up underneath.

Nice! I've had this kit for years, though still in a box in the loft. One day! Very Happy

Pity no one has ever done a Gaff/Deckard set of comparable quality. No money in it, I guess..
