    With these parts I completed the making of the details of the rear compartment. Now I can move on to assemble the compartment as a whole and place tanks and details on the external walls.
    Best, Nando :)

    PS: many attempts to try to reproduce at best discharges of some sort of gas or fluid :cool:

    What torture! The very small parts are very funny and overall it is impressive as they enhance a model. Fantastic work.

    Since you are doing such a FANTASTIC JOB on all of these tiny parts, it will make a HUGE impact on the model as a whole!!!

    I decided to make the pedestal provided by the model to have a place to put the model while it is under construction. When I will have completed the model, I will study something to see the interiors.

    All quadrants complete with details. The next step is the peripheral rings.
    Best, Nando :)

    I cannot believe you downscaled a ultra detailed model and are keeping ALL details in the reduced size!
    Great Nando!
