    well the great thing about the HW models are that all are available in pdo format, so you can interact with the finished product.

    Keep it up, when i get a new printer ill have to do this one too.

    Alright, 4/14 finished! YAY! Now for page 5,6, and 7 for today. More updates following the hour!

    -Just want to say, this model is supposedly 40 something inches(WHoa, typo, I meant 40 centimeters). Shown by more horrible pictures, the model is so far 29 cm, I'm at halfway point now, whoo!

    -As for the pictures, sorry, I don't have a lamp for any photography, I'll make sure to get pictures tomorrow or so.

    -As for the model, this is great! The pieces fit perfectly, but sometimes need a push or tweezer here and there :)

    Just a note that occured to me on the build which scared me. 2 parts, which aren't in order, (See page 8 of the Vagyr Flagship pdo.) are to be placed as ,supporters or sections I guess. They also prove vital if you like tabs. On page 8 there's a white, completely white piece, use that for the back of the head, as seen in picture 1-2. It fits perfectly, and proves to be very very useful...

    Another little supporter is shown on page 8 of the Vagyr pdo. It has alot of score marks near the bottom, and is vital to armoring the skirts nearing the end of your model.

    Picture 1 shows the piece.
    Picture 2 shows it before being placed.
    Picture 3 shows the piece placed.

    This should be placed a little past halfway point, on the bottom, after that yellowish container.

    Woot! I'm halfway done with the entire model! :) So I though I'd better add this white background and try, but fail, in photography.

    So whadya guys think so far?

    I'd say this model is still fantastic, and even though I haven't finished, I'll have to say,

    This model is a blast from beginning to ...-

    After this model, I'll be starting a Front Mission build thread for zenith, Blizzia L and Numsekar (Just something to watch out for!)

    How goes the Flagship, Soaring? Any additions made since your last post?

    Yup, I have little progress, I can post it, but I'd like to get half of the engine done before posting anything. Thanks for keeping me on track!

    3 more pieces to go, I'll post some finishing pictures this afternoon, Hope everyone finishes!
  13. Soaring

    Soaring Guest

    I'm guessing 2 hours left, and only one more piece to go! Hope I finish :)

    I think I actually might finish something for a change :)

    Eww...My bridge got wet, I gotta reprint :eek: Don't worry, pictures that are just a tad better will come with the final build :)

    I guess your Halo is sticking around for the build? Keep up the good work. I may actually get to this model in the coming months.

    Yeah, I'm going to have the Ship go through the ring for a finale picture :)

    Finished! After really 2 weeks of work, probably a month due to all the lack of productivity, the Vagyr Flagship is done!

    I'd like to say Thanks to Toddlea for starting this contest, and all those who were generous enough to add some of their own prizes into the lot. It was a great contest, one heck of an experience, and I can't wait to enter the next one :thumb:

    As for the Flagship, like I said before, this ship is a blast from the beginning to end. It's great to display after it's built, and it goes, "Woosh". If you build this model, you'll have an absolute fantastic time.

    -By the way, when viewing the following pictures, make sure to apply the "Wooshing" Sound, epsecially when the ship goes through Halo.
    Until next time :wave:

    I played around with the Finale pictures, but hey, I just had to :)
    The last one is a Human hand for scale.

    Warning: If you can't take low lighted, or Brightened pictures, do not keep viewing, iif you can take it, by all means, keep going! But remember, the Woosh sound!

    What an awesome job! Thanks for sharing with us, Soaring :).
    I have definitely gotta have a go at this. Will probably take twice as long as yourself, too!
