Amazing results! How many different donor dvsds did you need to get all the missing stickers/parts from?

1x beater donar ship was used which i took some panels as they werent yellowed i mainly bought that because it came with inlusive hologram.
i bought white bulb deflector, hologram retainter, and bulb which came from a old at-at they use the same bulb all seperately. t

the red window and reb bulb were both bought seperatly aswell. And i got a job lot of parts which contained the gun and spares of SD and some used decals. other decals were sourced here and there.

im just chuffed i got the original electrics going in the chamber and gave the originals base and medidation chamber a new lease of life.

although it would of been easier and cheaper to buy a complete one. but then i never would as ship never appealed to me. but the fact i found it in that shop and its now play worthy/display worthy i love it

great job Chris , it looks fresh outta the box . I would have just bought a complete one as my patience level would not have been there ... very cool
