Poster with explanations made for brickshelf.

This model was made as an entry to the P38 contest on Lugnet/Zemi.net, and I must say I really enjoyed the challenge. First model of the year.

I made it on the 26th and made some minor changes on the 27th and 29th (moving the guns and correcting some small errors). Since I didn't have time to visit my parents where my lego is, I had to make it directly in MLCad. 

Originally I planned to only display this model on Brickshelf until I'd uploaded all the earlier models. However, as I was careless enough to include an add for this page on the picture I sent in, I decided to at least display the pictures here as well. A more throughout description (including the hidden techniques) will be made at a (much) later date.

But until then there are some more pictures of the model below. By the way, remember to look at the other models in the gallery now that you are here.
