    Not enough pics! It looks great! There's never "another Betty", it's your Betty. Would like to see more pics. Was this model difficult? :)

    Congratulations, well deserved prize! Looks like the first finished Betty ever! I can see some minor differences in the hydraulic system, but who cares, this is great work and we need more photos. I like it! ;)

    OK so you wanted more pictures so here they are.
    @Vger1981 - Yes there are some differences in the hydraulics, one I couldn't get the bottom ones on because i had already glued the wing/engines on i will be going back and putting those on when i can ,and the top set are not quite right i set the arm angle wrong during assembly so i had to fudge it a little to make it look right. all in all a great little ship. i am not sure what the final scale of it was since i had to reduce it a little to fit the paper i used if i had to guess maybe 1/150.

    Here are a few suggestions:

    Colonial Viper MK-II (from UHU02)

    Thunder Fighter (any of the variants)

    Landram (any of the variants)

    With whatever you choose, I am looking forward to seeing it!

    BEST OF LUCK!!!

    Now you should scratch the whole Auriga docking bay for her, of course... :nailbiting:
    ..just kidding. Keep up the good work! ;)

    Do one of Lepaj's Star Fury's or Thunderbolts. Those are awesome! It took me a while to find this site. Download everything as when sites start shifting around, they soon disappear!! These models are of exceptional quality and not for beginners. :)

    already have most of these, but there are a few new ones i dont have YAY i think i am going to do the Thunderbolt, i have always loved the design of it. i will probably upscale it a little bit to make it a bit easier on the hands. will start it soon and do a build thread to go along with it.

    @zathros, thanks for the links i will definitely grab the ones i was missing. :)

    I would upscale these too. I like larger size, not ridiculous, but hefty, larger models. Happy to have been of service. :)
