I expected to see a potential horror story about fit issues, but was instead blown away by the result. Best satellite dish I have ever seen

Tremendous work on those dishes Marco. The finished result is going to be great. Hopefully you will be able to take lots of detailed photos when finished.

Really looking forward to your next post

Regards

Kevin

Thanks! All in all, I'm happy with the way the dishes turned out, and I didn't have to put the model on hold trying to get the extra parts.
So here is the final progress on the dishes, and the propeller!

Finished!

And there is the end result, the big beast is finished! One of my more challenging builds in a while, but well worth it.
