Nice. Looks like it was a lot of fun to assemble.

Looks great, I'm too much of a chicken to start mine....

How long did it take to build?

I've seen these kits in the store but as of yet I haven't bought one. After seeing yours built I may have to break down and one or two to try out.
Nicely built. Looks great.

This took about 2-3 evenings to complete. My advice is to just go for it - you might surprise yourself!

Thanks Ron .

The only thing I can think of is to either add the thruster nozzles at the end, or just be very careful if you fix them in place when the instructions say to, as they're very fragile and could easily break off.
