John, Yeah...I think once the shape is done, the rest is the fun part I think. I built my structure without having many kits, so I've been buying as I go along..mainly 1/700 Hasegawa kits. You can see, I'm using a fair bit of artistic license with the model. It's ANH size, but it's got an element of the larger model in it.

Here's my last update for a while. I've difused the light in the docking bay area. Sorry for the crappy pic, but I had the lighting down and had to alter the levels to compensate.

**EDIT**
Fixed the docking bay orientation issue.

I don't know weather to drool first or put my eyes back in my head. That is one of the most beautiful models I have seen. Let me know when it's done so I can give you my shipping address

Jamie, you're definately right about toning down the detail. I'm going to sand back many of the small panels slightly so they are not so raised.

Thanks for the feedback

Very impressive work!

I agree with Jamie about the prominence of the raised details. I hesitated to say anything for fear of threadcrapping. Glad to see constructive criticism is welcome.

Neil, that's BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to see how the bridge piece turns out. Looks like you have a lot of kool detail along the sides, too. Keep it up!

thanks Robert. I'm gonna finish the bridge area once I have completed the lighting inside. I think I'll find the angles on the bridge quite a challenge to be honest. I'm running out of kits to use to detail the flipping thing too
