    Looks great! Thats what i did with my Sandcrawler too. But that was simpler cause being a ground vehicle i didnt really need an armature.

    When you finally get to put it all together in real life... thatll be so satisfying

    Incredible animation of the acrylic parts going together! Thanks for sharing that. It really shows how much passion and hard work you put into this project!

    Very cool, and intriguing, what software did you make it with?

    I've started to organise the bits and pieces I need to actually start the build *finally*!

    I have ordered the steel for the armature frame. It will be 25x25x2.5mm square section - as per the original model.

    I have made up the 60 odd guide dowels I need and have started compiling the 3D printed parts.
    There are a few pieces of off the shelf styrene tube, pipe and sheeting used on the original - I now have those in hand too.

    I have all the model kits used on the ship apart from two, but there is only a single piece in each of those kits - so just two pieces I dont have yet...

    I am currently working on producing the patterns for the acrylic and styrene sheets so that I can have those cut.

    It begins!

    I have uploaded my collection of reference images (of the Narcissus in varying stages of construction) to my facebook page if anyone is interested.
