218 pieces, 6 hours total assembly time.
Decals applied, has yet to be painted.
Tweezers, wire cutters, and a nail filer were needed. Superglue was required for certain pieces.
Approximate dimensions (not including display stand): 15cm x 18cm x 9cm
This model was a real challenge to assemble, but still fun. Added a dime in a few of the pictures for size reference. All the patterns on the white areas are manually applied decals, some were no larger than 4mm in length.
The little spikes and nubs on the edges of the ship also had to be manually installed, most of which wouldn't stay put without krazy glue.
I might do the paint job for it later...
