Difficult subject, interesting building methods - i'm into this kind of stuff :love:

The Riddick Universe is very strange and inconsistent regarding aesthetics and technology level - some is great, some is meh.
this is one of the better examples (although it looks more like a flyer/shuttle than a spaceship capable of interplanetary travel)

Ya I'm not as big of a fan of the Necro ships. Love the Hellion fighters tho.

I believe the C-19 was designed as a short-range skiff. In the film it appears the ship goes into a cruise mode and drifts with the pilot in stasis. I could be wrong. Definitely doesn't look comfortable for groups on long journeys.

'No legs' indeed. Who knows how long they slept in biolation...picked up by a FTL Uber, etc. This universe is Space 1999 odd.

Hey folks, only a bit of construction lately. I started roughing out the air brakes and ailerons.

But I wanted to share something. So thought you might enjoy a photo with most of the sub-assemblies together. It's just taped with some cardboard fins, but you can start to see it take shape.

That looks sick man... Great job.

Never underestimate the joy of test fitting and assembling. It gives you that well deserved pleasure of seeing the potential of your project... And this thing has a lot of potential.

Thank you for sharing. Defenatley makes me want to get back to my projects.

Thanks Larsen, ya you definitely get a feeling of satisfaction seeing it all come together.
Need to stay focused on this build. I have a curse. I bounce from project to project and rarely build one straight through. Always going from one to another and back. Think I have 5 builds on the bench at the moment.
