I know, I know...couldn't help myself: bought the new 1/8 scale EVA Pod from Moebius. I'd built a 1/6 studio model of one Pod already; but this one has a fully detailed interior Cool
Here's a side by side pic of the two scales.

Great news Pro Mod I think that a few will be build, here as well as on the RPF Wink I will share any trick that will make this model easier to build/paint.

As promised, a little play by play into the construction/quality of the Moebius kit.
First: I thought that the pieces were crisp and fitted well. You'll have to be careful with certain holes in the main body (specially where the thrusters are placed) You'll have to find a dowel a little bit thinner than the hole and wrap it with sand paper to make sure it's round. Beside that, I've prepped the two halves and blocked the half moons (grab handles) with silicone.
Next: I'll spray a thick coat of silver to avoid any light bleed from the interior controls.

Here's the inside being build...careful with the decals on the instrument panels: the holes for the buttons are too tight Confused I ended up cutting those by hand to make sure that the decals fit Rolling Eyes

So, the interior is done; did some add-on box lights on one side only (there's a lot of space to add all kind of lights/batteries, etc.
