    Adding to my 1:1 models collection, I've started with a bit more detailed full-scale spacecraft this time! This, coincidentally, is also my final project for a technical drawing class I'm taking, so obviously I wanted to do something that would be a bit more detailed than what I usually do.

    So, as part of the assignment, we had to draw both an orthographic and isometric of the subject, and include a list of the parts, their dimensions and...shape. I mean, considering I was thrown into a beginner's-level course, this class is beyond patronizing.

    And all the parts have been drawn up! All that's left is drawing up the instructions, doing a table of contents, the cover, and some paperwork for my Technical Drawing instructor.

    and, the model is now a whole 19 pages of parts!

    HOOOKAY, managed to get some work done on this thing despite my week being derailed by certain problems...

    Got a preview pic done and all that junk, hopefully I'll be able to get the model out on time tomorrow!
