    I got my Boyce Nike-Hercules today. The shipping box had a dent it, but looks like all the parts are fine.

    I started work on the Boyce Nike Hercules. In some ways it is similar to the Nike Hercules limited production that the Sandman from Roachwerks put out about 6 years ago, but there are differences. There was 4 printed parts that I wet sanded and then painted. I got tired of wet-sanding, so I dry sanded the 4 fins for the second stage main body. I had plenty of the Rust-o-leum automotive gray primer left over, so I continued to use it for the dry sanding.

    Just opened my Boyce Saturn 1b. Assembly was somewhat quicker than I anticipated.

    The Saturn 1B and the Nike-Zeus go together very easily. The parts fit just right. The challenge is in the finish. Both the painting and decals, but especially the sanding of the 3-D printing striations, if you elect to remove or decrease them.
