So I've been busy finishing other projects but i'm back on the Slave and I'm a bit stuck on the greeblie/kit parts in the main engine. If anyone can identify these parts or has any decent pix I would be grateful. Can't find any clear ref pix online and the model kits I have are just simplified shapes

So there's this part that is mirrored just above the Hasegawa part below the engine

so

And these 3 parts; the 2 small greeblies stuck on the inside of the hull and the larger triangular piece above the wing

Incredible! Can't wait to see this thing come together. It'll be HUGE!!!!! Will you be doing an interior hold and if so, how are you planning to access it?

No, not an interior hold as such but I will have to have a ramp and part of the visible interior as well as a fully detailed cockpit

So here are my latest offerings on this project...got the wooden 'ribs' cut out and attached the strings, ready for skinning and fibre glassing the hull.

Also the main body of the fuselage is coming together using a similar method but skinned with bendy ply and laminated

Also finished the armature that should hold it all together and act as a spine to bolt everything onto

Thanks dude :ninja:

So more work on the fuselage. The scene I am replicating has the ship's ramp extended and the 'ceiling' retracted upwards. I mocked up an interior which will be lit from inside.

The hull is all glassed and ready for filing. This is a before shot with the dust sheet spread over the form.

That hull looks amazing so far!

I am sitting here paint chipping my Bandai Slave 1 and I was looking for reference pics when I found your build. Now I am looking at my model, looking at your build, looking at my model, somehow I feel a bit inadequate in a bunch of different ways :)

Nice work!
