    my favorite! wonderful ship to build! i really enjoy your build pics and learn a lot about the models I want to build that you do! thank you and I also still think that some conventions or something should buy your displays and use them as décor!

    @spaceagent-9 Thanks Jim :D I'm glad they're inspirational.

    I'm still building and attaching modules:-

    without instructions so it's kinda slow going for me - even with my Eaglemoss model as a guide ;).

    @spaceagent-9 Spot on Jim! - it'll be about 25-30mm when it's done.

    I added all the top modules and cut the parts for the section joining the wings to the nacelles:-

    I connected the nacelle struts and then cut some underside module parts:-

    I discarded one of the base layers as three were too thick. I also remembered to cut out the X sections. I fitted the bulk of the underside modules and cut the parts that I'd missed as well as some pieces for the nose section:-
