Default Scale Build Spotlight: 35% AMR Decathlon Build

The FG Scale Build Spotlight is a little look into the scale build log forum here on FG. Occasionally we will highlight a build that we find to be pretty darn awesome. In this edition we are featuring Tom Hastie from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada's build of a 35% AMR Decathlon.

Tom started his build with a big box of sticks on Nov 8th of 2012 and has been plugging along doing a great job of documenting his work. Tom has a great attention to detail which is translating into a very nice build of the model.

One of the first things you will notice in this build log is that the AMR kit seems very nice. The wood, the parts and fit of everything is spot on. So great job AMR for making a very nice complete kit! The next thing you will notice is the awesome instruction manual. Spiral bound no less! Again nice one AMR!

Tom's attention to detail in documenting his work will serve as a great reference to others building this kit. Make sure to check out his time lapse videos. They are very entertaining.

So withoput further ado, please take a moment and check out Tom's 35% AMR Decathlon Build Log!
