Hello again everyone. Wow, 3 posts in one day. It must be because my progress is very incremental but well documented.
Anyway, I messed about a little more this evening. I started working on the arc pieces that go though notch in the missile guides. I think ILM fudged their build when they made this section of the ship - it appears the arc-length on the center parts is longer than that on the parts around the circumference of the hull's front plate. This is even though they used the same donor kit throughout. Thus, my pieces in this section must be a little different too. Plus, in spite of my efforts, the front plate of my weapons fuselage is a little flatter than the original and this, too, affects my fit up. It's getting there though and I'm happy with how it's coming out.
I also worked on and finished another detail part that's at about 11 o'clock on the top front of the weapons pod. I'd been leaving that off until the chairs were underway. I got that all done this evening and have now enough parts on there to mark out the rivet holes in the area which I will drill tomorrow. I'm pretty happy with this. Won't be long now before Bandai's next announcement, I can just feel it.
I ran my errands in town. No luck on finding and Microweld, though I did find the new 1:144 Moebius Discovery kit. I must be mad. My wife actually talked me into it, and pointed out that it would fit in our display case that I built downstairs. It was a decent price too, cheaper from a brick and mortar store here in Edmonton than I could get it online, especially with shipping etc. on top of that price. Verdict: happy. Sentence: no superdetailing, straight from the box only.
: Nice to see another Edmontonian on board!
Hopefully my mojo will continue into tomorrow. Meanwhile, a couple more minor pics...
Thanks for looking,
