Awesome feedback guys..i'll try to add some more WIP pics as I go along but not sure about any vids...I am not Adam Savage after all
So, here's this weeks progress report. Got all the 'boxes' done on the Starboard underside; Front Jaw/Docking Arm/Landing box/Gun platform/tail fin. Exactly the same as the first half but with the Docking Arm modified for the ramp fitting...

...which I decided to scratch build from laser cut panels for greater durability. Work in progress at the moment

Good question...most of the seams will be hidden by parts that lie directly on the mid point but some of the more exposed areas like the jaws/gun platforms, will have hull plates covering the seamSo are you going to have hull plates that cover the seems when you put the two halves together?
Let's just say it a full time job! When I'm on a project, then every waking hour almost is devoted to completing each stage as efficiently as possible and planning the next. So early starts, late finishes, no actual breaks, no phone etc. For me, concentration is the key and that requires being able to focus exclusively on the task at hand to achieve a good level of momentum that feeds back into my enthusiasm for the build. If the job went slowly then I would probably lose interest and start something else...we've all been there!In all seriousness, how many hours a day do you put in on this, including planning?
