    This is a model that is truly massive. Detailing the outside becomes fairly easy at this scale. There is more I would like to do with it detail wise, but this is still in test build phase as far as I know. The master mind who combined all the different models together and re-detailed this to make it all similar was, Legal01. In the future though, I would like to try this in a smaller scale. If you are familiar with scratch building your own parts, there is a lot you could do to this model detail wise.

    Details are slowly being added to the master files, its a massive job and really only for the serious enthusiast to make every rib and detail that this design has.

    Okay, after a long break, I am getting back to it. Decided to build Stage 2 first and then finish the interstage. So, without further ado here is the start of the 6 J2 engines. 20160502_192517.jpg 20160502_193231.jpg 20160502_194255.jpg 20160502_200258.jpg 20160502_200636.jpg 20160502_201543.jpg 20160502_202014.jpg 20160502_202803.jpg 20160502_203023.jpg 20160502_205203.jpg

    @zathros : was about to say this! Such precision not only in regards to build quality but also in regards to the painted edges! This is gonna be a crips clean build when finished, can't wait to see more.

    Once again on mounting the top and bottom of the bell if you want to make the connection seamless you would just need to cut parts 11 a bit shorter.
    20160504_154621.jpg 20160504_154630.jpg With part 20 just make sure everything is aligned correctly and it should more or less place itself. There is a white mark on part 14 that will help with the alignment.

    Parts 24,25,26,27 assembly will be the same for parts 28,29,30,31 so I only showed the one assembly.

    Be sure to keep track of which parts are which the next step can be confusing if you aren't paying attention.

    With part 21 laminate and fold in half then cut it out.

    With part 34 it more or less inserts itself correctly. Well designed.

    For parts 32,33 if you use a 1mm dowel in the center that works out really well for the correct sizing.

    Parts 37 and 38 just need to be folded and laminated together. When placing on the engine it helps if you pre-curl the back ends also, in my pics I initially folded the tabs at the bottom backwards.

    With all these bits once again a 1 mm core seemed to work pretty well. If you shave some of the end off a toothpick worked pretty well.

    Parts 53 and 54 were a bit of a pain to figure out. However this is more or less what it is supposed to look like sadly, I put mine on backwards the rest of the engines will be done correctly.
    20160505_151459.jpg 20160505_151509.jpg 20160505_151519.jpg 20160505_174426.jpg 20160505_175651.jpg 20160505_175827.jpg
    And these are the last two bits to attach and here we have more or less a finished J2 engine. I do need to get a bead to finish it off. Will add more pics when I do. Time to build the other 5.
