    The model is looking great! Almost looks like solid pieces.

    Thanks Zath.

    Even though I still have some steps in the build before i HAVE to decide, Ive decided to go with the Cruiser mode. I can do the Mech mode later, but with the builds of my Veritechs, I think the Cruiser would be better dislpayed with those little guys

    Wow! Build looks flawless so far! nicely done. Can't wait to see this in cruiser mode. You're inspiring me to do one too, now....

    On a side note:
    Is it not interesting that the two most prominent earth-vessels in Stargate is the Prometheus and Daedalus :p

    Other than the original Movie, I didn't really watch Stargate, but as far as the SDF-1, Yeah, you should build it :)

    On the One hand, i applaud your design Thunderchild....but on the other hand, those beveled edges are a Bitch. Pardon my language. lol

    :twisted: sign1

    I was wondering about the beveled edges while doing my own test build. Eventually me and the test builders decided that the bevels just adds that extra detail to make it worth keeping.
    The other rationalization was that the small v1 model could just be scaled up for those who find the bevels too daunting.

    You're doing an amazing job with these difficult parts. Nice to see the model come together. :thumb:

    The parts are so nice, I think it would be better to have it opened up instead of looking like a spaceship. :)
