Thanks everybody!
star-art, agreed, trying to copy all the wonkyness of the original ship and getting parts to fit is definitely difficult.

So I was looking at reference picks over the weekend and realized I had missed a detail on the dash panels. Here's the corrected parts.

Love the commitment to a faithful replica here. The castings look excellent.

And the fact that you have reworked the model to new references is classic!

Looking good! Just remember that on the filming models those "wing" panels that go on either side are angled back quite a bit more than we see on most replicas.

Beauty(y) I see that the casting is convex; I never had much luck with those in the past. While the silicone mold is great, it's the pouring of the resin that poses a problem. Any tricks you could recommend?:unsure:
