3d, this turning out awesome. That is a ton of pain staking work but it really shows. Great job. I also love the detailed explanations of what you are doing and how you are doing it. For a novice like me, I find the " how to do this" information very informative and helpful. Thanks and stay with it.
Will do and thank you!:thumbsup

This is looking utterly phenomenal!!!
Can i ask what do you use for scribing? Your panel lines are superb!!!!

Rich
Nothing special i use my Exacto-knife, but i
break off the VERY end of the tip. Then i place
the cutting edge up when i do the scribing.

So it kind of looks like this....

Oh and just so you know scribing panel lines is 100%
technique, you dont have to be a master modeler to do
it!:lol But you do have to sit down and practice! So its very
possible to have glue all over your model and have beautiful
panel lines.......:lol

The lower hull is a bit flimsey so got some
Z-poxy and some fiberglass mat. Thanks to
Modman06 for bothering me o finally do it!:lol

Placed the template on top of the mat over
the part and just traced it.



Then the fiberglass cloth was cut and the Z-poxy was
brushed over it. I need to get a little better at it, but since this side
is 100% un-seen its not that important.:lol:thumbsup


Its super strong now and i have no problem
handeling it, so mission complete!:thumbsup
