I bought several of the old cutaway when they were on close-out at Big Lots. This was back when there wasn't a good TOS 1701 plastic kit out there. My plan was to combine the two into a non-cutaway full version. I tested it out by using the extra parts to make a Saladin. It turned out pretty well, but right before I finished it, I had to pack it up in my parents basement and move to another state. I recently got it back out. This makes me think I might need to try and finish it.
