Well, I have been watching this, and I must say you have done exceptionally well with all the various workarounds.

It is really going to look great when it is finished.....

Cockpit detailing

Floogen, you have too much confidence in me: "Instructions" should mean there is a "plan". Haha! Heck, even the modifications I make are done on the fly, with measurements taken with my calipers, so I'm scratchbuilding hard as I go. I'll lay one thing on top of another, and then decide what goes next. There is no plan...

Case in point, here is what I was working on tonight:

The front sensor module





The cockpit




Top view of the control panel.





The cockpit frame is still detached; I need it so that I can do a proper paint job before closing it up.






Looks like the pilot left his lunch on the dash. There's some corn, some green beans. Some ketchup. Yum.


The cockpit looks to be the right scale. I should be able to fit a pilot in there




This guy wants the pilot's leftovers.

Internal greeblies

Added more internal greeblies. Again, these are all done on separate removable (for now) panels. Once done, I can paint them easily, and then install them permanently in the hull.

Here is the ladder to get to the top hatch, and some detailing of the hatch. It will later be mounted on a hinge, like the rear ramp.



The current view from the rear hatch:



The view from the starboard ball turret port:



And the view from the port ball turret port:



(Of course, these will be covered up by the ball turrets once those are done...)

Here is the interior panels removed and laid flat, to show the details:



And here is the current parts of the model:

Super interior and cockpit. You're really going above and beyond on this one.

Thanks Floogen! I'm glad you like it. Hopefully it paints up well too.

Haha! Well spotted townsman, it's a little easter egg...

Not sure how it fits into the 8th edition ruleset. Maybe you use it to "fix" the bad move you made a couple of turns ago? :p

Hinges

Added the functioning hinge and external parts of the top hatch. The hinge is made from some thicker electrical wire that I run through a short piece of cotton swab cutoff.








Replaced the skew rear ramp with a much better version, plus hydraulics. The hydraulic arm is made from a toothpick running inside a lollipop sleeve.









The interior modelling is almost finished, then I can slap some paint on it and finish it off.
