    little progress

    Just a bit more progress on the right Engine, and a decision was officially made today for Cruiser mode when Anna told me she wouldn't mind the SDF-1 on the Mantle. I love my girl. :yep:

    Progress so far. It's starting to take shape. :)

    Please note, Although the segments are glued together, they are not glued to other segments. That will come at the end of the build. :)

    No problem, figured it was a while since the last pic of what's completed, Thought it would be nice to have an overview of the completion. Currently, Im building the other engine, so it will be awhile before more updates.

    OK, I lied, the build of the second Engine went faster than I thought (Guess when you have time off of work, and the Family leaves you alone for building things go faster) hehehe

    Now we have an idea of the general length of my SDF-1 :D roughly about 17 inches :D

    That's a really interesting looking part. It came out really nice too. Lots of subtleties there. :)

    Kinda looks like an assembly nightmare. Still more pieces to build before the REAL assembly begins ;)

    Thanks ThunderChild. I am so glad I scaled this up, I have no idea how it would have been built if printed on regular A4
