    Thanks Flimzy!!

    Here's a quick update. Mostly completed Starboard Rear Pit panels. I still have a few minor tweaks to make, but it's close. My Plating is not 100% due to some early placement errors that I decided to live with. If I get ambitious enough, I can always pop off the styrene plates and redo them. It's at one of those points where you just decide to live with some compromises and small off-sets rather than laboring over trying to get every little nibble exactly in place. Also started on the side wall damage/weathering near the docking ring. I still have some styrene to chop off to make it look a bit more 'angled' as it goes up. But it's fun to melt the styrene and try to get approximate shapes/deformations.

    Piping installed into pit, along with the 'T' channels meeting the 8Rad part (Happy with the way/angle these came out)

    And the long shot, the overlap on the rear quarter is looking just about right!

    Most beautiful hunk of plastic we've ever seen.
