Thank you all for your comments, they are very encouraging!
While you've seen the 'Mae West' assembled, here are shots of it, as well as the final part for the figure, the uniform jacket. I've included rank stripes (enough for Air Marshall, if you wish) but not the braid slides as even at 1:35 they would be very
small. As with the combat jacket, the uniform collar can be assembled open to display the collar/tie of the dress shirt.
I will be making instructions soon, starting tonight most like. I intent to try a much more visual (and less wordy) instruction with these. Pepakura Viewer 3.0 is a brilliant tool for viewing portions of models, and I hope to leverage this for the instructions.
