    The Jawans made a great motorcycle, not shown in the movies, never could figure out why? This, with that skiff, you could go anywhere!!!! :)

    Ennder, I showed my son (19) the photos up to the finished model, he was very impressed, and nothing impresses him. I too am impressed, extremely so. That bow section framing was superb, and this model is fantastic from the inside out. I think you have found your calling. I look forward to your next scratch built model., we all do!! :)

    Thank you Zathros. At the moment I'm letting my brain rest;) and then I will decide which one I want to do.
    I'm thinking of two models: the Draconian Marauder from Buck Rogers and The U.N.S. Flying Dutchman from
    the Expeditionary Force series by Craig Alanson. I'm leaning toward the Dutchman as seen on the cover of
    book seven. But there are 3 versions of the ship, as captured(long spindly space bus, multy docking points), first modification
    (shortened with only 1 set of docking points), and final(so far) modification as seen on book seven
    (shortened further and no docking points).
