    Thanks, guys. About the only things I can do well are cylinders and cones, which is why I don't try building planes anymore. ;)

    I think your assessment of your building skills is a bit off. This is a well-built model, with good and clean construction, just like the other stuff you've shown here.

    Super build, mate!
    Where'd you source the little spheres from? I ask because I was just about to print out and build this myself.

    I used imitation pearls that I bought in the craft section at Walmart. You can probably find them in any store that sells craft supplies. I glued short sections of wire in the hole using epoxy and then sprayed the pearls with silver spray paint.

    That is a nice, clean build. Excellent attention to detail. Congratulations.

    The pearls really work well, and are available in a nice assortment of sizes. Ther e is no way I would ever be able to assemble paper spheres at that scale. The pearls really make the model come together.
