    Thank you for your encouraging words Cybergrider and zathros.
    Sure I will finish, although an old project has to be finalized first (Viper Mark VII - plastic).
    I will continue soon.

    Oh that is a question I do not want to answer. - But regarding your writing I think that it is clear what you PREFER.
    So galactica finalized - now back to STAR WARS. Two open projects - snowspeeder and .......see picture. ;-)
    Both not so much to do before finalizing. - Keep you updated.

    Did you draw that? It is excellent!! If you did draw it, would you please be willing to put your work in the Renders and Illustrations section. It was made for Art like this. :)

    Yes, it is my drawing. THANK YOU for the cheerful words.
    I checked Robert Beaileys drawings - thank you to compare me with him. But he is a master and I am still a padawan.
    How to do - good question. I read some books (only two where really good) and checked internet videos. The rest is drawing whenever the time allows it with each and every material you have. I think practice is the secret.
    I made the same drawing twice - one at the beginning and the other later on - interesting how different they are. Unfortunately I don´t have the first drawing and therefore I can not show.

    I will put the final drawing in the Renders and Illustrations section. By now I did not realize that drawings should be part of it.

    I agree that this model is hard to build even it is made of large cubes :) However It is not impossible and you can make a nice T-47 if you put into this model a lot of patience :) Keep going

    My Snowspeeder

    Just trust your feelings and the force and remember - this is only a paper - you can make your own parts and do whatever it takes to achieve the goal

    Puuh, I dont like so small parts. These are the next parts and finally assambled.
    At the end of the building I will check these parts again, I think I might remove them if I find a better way to do them.
    (They are ugly - but I won´t show details - maybe you do not see the catastrophe - for the moment it will stay - it is on the back side.)

    P.S. shit - you see details - my handy makes too detailed photos.
