I didn't know what to build next after Bandai's B-Wing was completed. So I let fate decide. Do I already regret it? I'm not sure. After reading some build logs on the internet my list of improvements and corrections is quite long. But then again - I'm sure it'll all work out :) In any case this will be different from the Bandai kit which required nearly no putty and took me merely a month to build.

Curious and original way to choose the next kit. I'm sure the resulting model will be very good.

Thanks for all your interest!
@JD: Who knows. Perhaps's I'll use this method for choosing the next kit again in the future. The Star Destroyer is still "in the pod" :)
@Oliver Zwiener: Yes, kind of! I've already built Revell's new tool Gannet AS Mk.4 and Trumpeter's T.Mk.5. The AEW.3 will now complete my Gannet collection.
By the way, my fiancée said "That's a cute plane, and it has a propeller" when she saw Sword's box art. Well, there is somethign to it. With a bit of imagination the Gannet could be one of Pixar's "Planes" characters...

Thanks for your interest!
I didn't know "Jimbo and the Jetset" before but youtube is your friend. So, yes, I can also picture the Gannet in that show :D
By the way, for full disclosure: I'm more or less following what this guy did with his Gannet:
Or at least I'll try.

Da schau ich dem Experten mal über die Schulter, was er aus einer Gannet zaubert, vielleicht versuche ich dann die von Revell doch mal zu bauen..
