    Everything looks great but the front. The canopy and nose cone don't looks right. Is that your intention to reshape the front? The shape looks like a goose head right now.

    You have a bump in front of the cockpit.
    Maybe these pics would help... :thumb:

    12 inches is a good size! I really dislike miniature models... i'm out of patience with those... so, good for your measure choise :thumb:

    TC right. Your bump is too much, need to tone it down. Make it smoother transition between canopy and nose cone.

    Actually there's no such thing as too big, it's all relative. If you really want to, you could make this 1:1... though I doubt anyone will build it then... :D

    I personally prefer the standard scales, 1:48 and 1:72

    Janx's Alpha is around 1:48 in scale and 11 inches long.
    If you want a large model, then I'd recommend something maybe double that size.

    well if this goes well, why not a beta? i belive Thunderchild has a beta, but a large beta to fit the alpha would be cool...as for the Sy Cannon...its doable, i love doing something not done...but i have no reference

    That looks beautiful. You have done a great job on this, you deserve to pat yourself on the back already. I can't wait to see this one colored.

    Looks superb. Great work and in quick time too.

    As for uploading. You can try MediaFire. You can create an account for free and upload you stuff there. Been using it for over a year now and never had a problem. Also you can add an remove files as you wish, simple and easy.

    Just a thought.

    To upload files here there is a filesize limit. If the size of your file is larger than a specific amount you need to contact the moderator who will upload it for you.
