Lovely build.  Assume that is the Retro Scifi one?

 

Built one an age ago and it was a nice little build, although for me it's a bit small and fiddly.  Going to have to start building with those giant Duplo blocks soon I reckon!

Lovely work! Yup, what Alun said - nice kit, but fiddly

Its almost a miniature!

 

I noticed that there is a 1/72nd plastic kit floating around out there. I think its an easykit. buut this looks much more accurate. 

Very nice work on the weathering. tough to get it looking right at that scale and you have done a really good job.

many thanks for the kind words and yes it is the "Retro" kit, it's listed as "rebel speeder" and there are two versions of the kit but from what i can see they are exactly the same, the only difference is the colour of the decals.

 

as for being fiddly, yep, i broke those rear air speed flaps of at least a half dozen times! so you really have to watch how you hold the kit when painting it or adding on other things
