I decided what I had done with the flight pod support structures was ugly and out of scale so I scraped it off and redid it. The flight pod supports are pretty much done and I started skinning the port side. I did screw up though where the head meets the body, I’m a half inch short on the chin part but the chin part is correct so I’m gonna have to hack into the back of the head and slide the body in at the top maybe 1/4 to 3/8 and then make up the difference with an extra ribbing on the chin. I don’t think anybody will notice

It's just spectacular. I can't even wrap my mind around how you're dong this.
Well thank you my friend, most appreciated. But it’s really not that hard it’s just time consuming. I am measuring the kit parts with a digital caliper and then doubling the measurements and then of course when it comes to curved pieces that’s somewhat tricky but I seem to work it out pretty well

I think you are doing an amazing job with this, with all the complex curves and shapes. Those greebles are amazing. The only thing I would do differently is on the gator head, and all of the ribs for that matter, is to bring them all way over, left to right, over the top and back down the other side. This would better represent the way the hull plating sets on the ribs. Just my 2 cents.

Also, too bad with this larger scale, that you did not make the pod arms retractable, or did I miss something??
