    I'm sorry to inform you that I have caught a nasty flu right after I have cut out the parts for the main habitat. So the test build is delayed for a moment. Once I feel better I'll show you some pics - I promise! :)

    I have started on my U.S. Coast Guard version, it will be solely for Rendering purposes and to show in the 'Renders and Illustrations' section. :)

    AHEM...

    First of all I apologize for the long wait, however, life demanded its toll. BUT now I am ready and eager to BUILD something again!!!

    As you might have guessed I'll start with the test build of the Alien Derelict. I have begun with the center pod, pictures will follow tonight when it is finished.

    The first impression of the kit is: It is like a dream. The fitting is superb and the texture is phenomenal. Major kudos to @Vger1981 . Thank you for designing one of the most unique spacecraft, for your patience and for letting me test the parts (I did find some issues though ;) ). CU later! :)

    Alright, here they come! :)

    I started with the bottom:

    A ring is attached:

    DSCF2824.jpg

    The top:

    DSCF2822.jpg

    I found it easier to leave the top piece open and to close it after it was glued to the ring:

    The parts for the top dome, arranged in an expressionistic fashion:

    DSCF2827.jpg

    Looks like an alien face..! ;)

    The open ring at the bottom of the picture is assembled first. Then an inner ring is added:

    DSCF2829.jpg

    Another level is attached to the inner piece:

    DSCF2830.jpg

    And a dome on top. Its petals are glued together using a small paper strip made from left-over pieces of the page.

    DSCF2831.jpg

    DSCF2832.jpg

    DSCF2833.jpg

    The dome is glued to the center piece which is now complete.

    DSCF2834.jpg

    Now come the arms. Stay tuned! :)
