    Sorry for what reason RF .... your model is great ! All the pieces comes together like fingers in the hand.

    No ! it's me with my adding and my sense of perfection. For the head, I did not take myself in the good way.

    Some update

    I build the body of the head and cut and placed the layers for the Windows. For smooth surface, I cut all the tabs, glued the parts with black paper in the back and sand all the joints.

    Next step, apply the final layer, the details and final assembly.

    Thin 15 lb. fishing line, mounted to chopped drinking straw segments, the kind they use at 7-11, the "Red, thin ones" strategically placed, in the shadowy spots, spray paint the line black. A completely dark room, maybe some strategically placed florescent dots for distance points of light. In the dark room, another line, to pull the ship on her "fish line course" First shot, one moving up and around the ship as she is moving. Second shot, fly by's done nice and slow, to let the camera keep in focus, as if she is being buzzed by some Vipers. A bit of editing. Post on Youtube, so you can embed it here. :)

    OK.......... I not good to keep a mystery.

    I'm a BIG BSG fan so when I say the UHU02 viper model, I was so impress with the amount of d├ętails so I say to me...... ''That's for me''. So, this will be my next model..........with a touch of my own of course. But first, completing my colonial one.
