You're a talented man Neil!
Couldn't resist finishing off the guns
The bulk of the second gun is a resin casting. These bits are separate:
Looking fantastic, you do know you will be hunted down & killed if this doesn't become a Kit?
You are a machine !!! Absolutly stunning work !
Now that looks perfect!
Each update gets better and better.
That's just pretty.
Durn straight . .that is pretty!
Cheers. I am feeling a bit like a machine at the moment unfortunately.
Don't worry Guy, I plan on remastering everything for moulding.
I did a bit of work today in between making a clay wall and fibreglassing my other project. I scratchbuilt the 'flakvierlingesque' parts, added some correct kit parts and some hardware.
I've also made a start on the underside, but I am still waiting for some of the donor kits to arrive. No pics yet.
Here is the rear gun in context:
Thanks to a photo that I was given over at Resin Illuminati I have found 2 major parts for the secondary wing recesses too.
Just in case anyone was wondering, this is my actual course final project that I am trying to complete along side the shuttle. 4 weeks to go.

This thing's just blown me away, fantastic work, and done so quickly.
You're a genius Neil !
Here is a pic of the underside as of this evening:
I thought you guys might be interested in seeing the workshop that lies beneath our studio here at uni.
Centre lathes. 6 of them. 2 are 8' long:
Milling machines (manual and CNC)
Rapid prototyping and lasercutting:
My favorite. Our trusty old vac-former:
looks like the Paradise for Scratchbuild-Modelers
What a breathtaking build-up on that shuttle !
Yes, looks like modellers heaven. That shuttle is the bomb. Please count me in for one when it goes into production.
WOW! Did I ever say I want one?
What an incredible buildup. Leaves me speechless....
Man thats fing AWSOME!!! If i did'nt say so before iam saying it now put me down for one.
Great work, Neil! Your scratch-building is super clean.
Your model is nearly same as Studio model IMO.
Please count me in for one...
Nice workshop, the company I work for has just invested in a rapid prototyping machine We do a lot of 5 axis cnc work and your workshop is almost as tidy as ours
