    This cockpit looks good! It has quite a bit of greebling potential.

    Shunichi thinks about adding a cockpit frame only. The glass should be made of clear plastics.

    A first glimpse at the plans:

    The page count has increased by two because of the interior and smaller additional details. The weathering was faithfully copied from the original studio model. :)

    BTW, @Rhaven Blaack : I guess we'll be busy adding a landing gear to it! ;)

    The side guns are very tricky. Shunichi is not pleased with the outcome and intends to remake them - by using a thin rod or wire as stabilizer.

    Thank you very much for the note, @bigpetr ! :Drinks:

    AND THANK YOU, SHUNICHI, FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL MODEL! :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown::Bravo::Bravo::Bravo::Congrats::Congrats::Congrats:

    I hope next will be the Sandcrawler. The general shape is flawless but the back needs more detail. If you add the detailing you will end up with the best Sandcrawler paper model to date. ;)
