Got around to building blake7's update of Michaelgr's Tachi from "The Expanse."

There's not much more to say about the model that hasn't already been said; it is well-designed, the instructions are clear and as cardmodels go, it is as "shake'n'bake" as it gets.

I rescaled the model from 1/100 to 1/144. I added a number of improvements:

-- Scribed and folded the longitudinal lines on the nozzle of the Epstein Drive; the exterior of the nozzle is supposed to be faceted, not round;

-- Separated the "vanes" (or whatever the heck they are) that are along the bottom of the nozzle

-- Added handrails and paneling/launch door detail to the torpedo bays and forward section of the crew module;

-- Added paneling detail throughout;

-- Recessed some of the panels;

-- Recessed the upper airlock door.

The photos suck, but here they are....

At first I thought this was a ship from the show "Blake's 7" and I was trying to figure out who, what, where, and when this appeared. It took me a minute to realize it's from "The Expanse". Great job either way!
