Started another today for a member of this forum Bryan. Today I made the base and got the model parts all trimmed and openings made for the AFT Photon emitter and the impulse engines. all the light blocking done and a custom base.
Video on the way. It will take hours to load.
Here's some pictures in the mean time.
The leather effect on the base I talk about in the video as well as showing you the entire process of building it.
