    Yes slowly the engines get ready..
    I have completed the right engines of the 2 ywings.
    and I just started with the 2 left engines..

    after that I need to make the rudder part for the 4 engines.

    the building goes slowly..
    this is how far i am.

    it took me some time to get good pictures from all the sides of the engine..
    the easie part is that there are many repeating parts...
    the sad part..i still have to build all of them :)

    at the picture i'm building the largest greeble part of the 2 engines.

    It might be slow, but I thing the time you spend will pay.
    Keep going!

    :) I almost finished the engine rings..
    I have installed them to the main engine rods.
    glued the shock absorbers to the rings.

    I still need to glue some little plates to the rings and then it's ready.
    and can I glue them to the main body.
