very small detail.

Stainless Steel photo etched parts are an absolute nightmare to cut!

Hey, people got lives.
I am always gratefull for bumping my thread ;-)

Not too much new to report.

Construction is done, and since i frequently have posted mock up pics, you have already seen the model in its final form.

I now have permanently glued/sealed the two fuselage halves together and filled and sanded all grooves and screw holes.
Now i need to paint and weather the ship.


Small Comparison of the Shuttle in very early construction stage and today ;-)

Whoa,whoa,whoa.

Wait a darn second.

First Holy Fu@&!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is amazing. I have two shuttles on display and several more for dioramas. I have not gotten around to re-painting them but you just bumped them to the top of the list. I was not going to add detail, and I will never be able to match yours, but I am gonna add some stuff too.

Now for the wait a second part.

Who's Star Destroyer is that?

Where can we see more pics of it?

Where can we see more of your collection?

Thanks and wow again. ;) :D :p :love: :eek: (y)

Holy CRAP that looks sweet as ****! It's making me want to track down a Shuttle myself so I can have a model as beautiful as yours! I'm going to use this thread as a how-to for whenever I end up getting one. Hopefully I'll be able to find one for a reasonable price...
