Who did you buy it from? If you didn't get what you wanted then RETURN it. I'm sure EBAY has some type of policy on this type of matter. By the way, why didn't you just listen to the guys in the group in the first place and go with Dale? He has never HOSED anyone and is as honest as you can get. <p></p><i></i>

Didn't return it because had no idea it was as bad as it was untill after I started assembling it.<br><br>I got it from a guy jknyte25@aol.com who said he bought it from a guy named Fred, FvC29@yahoo.com<br><br>Dale is a GREAT guy. Had I known about Dale and the 501st BEFORE I bought it I would have got mine from him. But alas, I didn't :-(<br><br>So, How to make this look like a sandtrooper?<br><br>TK118 <p></p><i></i>
