I'm now working on the underside of 'Slave 1' and have a display stand. She's now starting to look like the real deal. You can see more about this stage of my build on my YouTube channel here -

It's been quite a while but I have now designed and 3D printed the rest of the underside parts for 'Prisoner With A Job 1'. You can catch up with the rest of this studio scale build here on my YouTube channel. In the meantime here are some renders of the final parts. You can expect a new episode in the build series to be out soon. Please, enjoy.

WORKING ROTATING COCKPIT
Hi guys, after your encouragement and a few beers I have re-built my Slave 1 cockpit to make it actually rotate! You can see the build video HERE on my YouTube channel. The explanation of my concept is below. Hope you like it.

This is the landing / take off position for the flight deck.

The flight deck rotates 180 degrees.

The unit then tilts back 90 degrees for flight

Here's the cockpit unit inserted into the main hull in the landing position.

And here it is in the flight position.

An overall shot with the vac formed canopy. Now I have to start work on the tail and bond everything together before detailing the outside.

Thanks for the feedback and support guys it's much appreciated.​
Exceptional.
