    Thanks!! Appreciate the comments!
    Got the domes bonded to the 'patty' now. I made the rough cutouts for the 'pits' and the antenna dish, then flipped it over and cut out the two larger 'pit' openings for the underside. I'll leave it upside down from this point and build up the entire bottom first, apply the dome edges, then the side details, then flip it back over and finish up the top.
    Finished up the Docking Arm Port for the top also (except filler putty needed in front of the Sherman), so both top docking arms are near ready to go. Once bonded to the domes, then I'll do the plating/greeblies to the sides of them.
    I also cleaned up the two lower docking arms. They'll get plating/top parts added next, then bonded to the lower dome. So here's a few progress shots:

    Hard to see, but the top access pits all cut out.

    Placing one of the built up pits just to see it in there. These will all be placed up on stands to fit properly in the pit openings.

    So cool to see the domes bonded Sean, such a milestone to get the hull sealed up!. I'm not too far away from doing the same, albeit a slightly different method.
    Again...you work so darn fast my friend, but your work is always flawless & clean!.
    Going to be amazing seeing all the pits in place.
