All in place...

I tried just laying in a strip of thin styrene but it looked sucky...

Thinner strips wrapped around a form and glued made a MUCH better effect !

Test fitting it looks good !

With everything lined up the center section was glued in and detailing followed just like the forward VEN..

Amazing detail and scratch building there Vaughan! Are you going to cast copies for the other three that you need or are you building them all from scratch as well?

Sweet!  Cutting those fins would have driven me batty.  Love the light!

That is some damn nice modeling, Vaugn.  Cutting that thick sheet is hard core.  Great work.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Thanks Carl... they are too complex for casting I think... and the expense for doing it I can't justify... so 3 more will be scratch built.
