    I was hoping to see you start this build.
    It looks like you are off to a good start!

    It's really coming out great. Time to start getting rid of those glue tabs. They will never let the panels line up right. Better to cut them off, and fold your own. This will allow you to align the panels exactly as you need to. :)

    Finally back again. Finished the first Danube. Started the next one with changes, but got bored, so I made this in stead. Im still looking for some larger scale models. I found some Star Trek, a BSG. Would like a Star Wars destroyer.

    Looks good. You might want to increase the thickness of the paper on some of the parts. The will hold the edges more squared up, and make gaps, and allow gluing of the edges themselves possible. Looks great! :)
