    Excuse me while I mop up the drool here.....

    That is really exceptional. And how much more impressive do you need to get? How long IS that thing?

    I assume you have it built on an aluminum rail or something similar to keep it from sagging?

    That's looking terrific.

    A little bit closer. The model is painted from the rear of the head and back. I am getting ready to add the stripes and decals. Almost done. Just a few more details on the front end. Enjoy.

    Pardon the hijack here, But what can you tell us of the crouching Alien in the bookshelf? It looks really sweet from the second shot of your Colonial movers.

    Nice model by the way.

    Could you post a list of the model kits you used to make this ship.
    I'd love to make one myself.

    Hi Scott and everyone. Thanks for the comments. Just waiting on the last of the kit parts to finish. As for help, I would love to. Just show me your progress and it will be on the way. I do not help out "list collectors". If you are truely building one show me. I started out with alot less info than what Boba Flint is showing. So, with that said "GO BUILD". :p

    That is impressive. I like the fact that you made a craft from the background, and not one of the glamour ships.

    And you have done it so well :thumbsup

    Hi Mike, hope things are well with you. I am STILL waiting on parts from someone. I did find some more parts recently. Especially the antenna on the front. It comes from the Aurora munitions carrier. Get that everyone. You Star Wars guys already know about that kit though. I guess it is used alot. More hopefully in the next week. A good friend of mine finally grabbed a Bandai Hummel, so I can now add the cockpit.

    George :D
