    Well, yes... it's been done many times before.
    But this is only my second papercraft build so I thought that I'd try something a bit larger and with some new folds and shapes in it. I have struggled a little with the cockpit section; it took 3 attempts to get it right, but it was worth the extra effort.

    Anyways... progress to date:

    Can't wait to see it finished. Like Zathros said, Greeble, Greeble, Greeble.

    A little more progress made this week and with a few 'dry fit' pieces in the pics.
    I love this build very much as it does appear to be very beginner friendly (at least so far;)).

    It looks like you are off to a really good start!!!
    This is one of those models, where you can get lost in the greebling of the model!
    I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out!!!

    I really like this ship for some reason. Maybe because of the role it played in the movie. ;)
