    After I have cut out pieces, I mark with pencil on all fold lines, then flip over and colour around the fold lines, ready for gluing.

    I seem to be having a great deal of difficulty uploading the pictures, it either doesn't upload or it does it twice or out of order.

    I then continued adding strength to the parts as I cut them, I even tried some of this corrugated card. I also printed parts twice to glue onto card stock for cutting of the reinforcement, wont do that again, not very cost affective

    On the central area I made my own girders to strengthen. And cut out landing bays, added a little
    extra.

    Your ship looks great. !!

    I haven't experienced any upload problems. The picture is placed where you put the cursor and click./ If it has not finished uploading, it will grab the picture that has uploaded and put it in that spot. It's best to upload all your pictures, then go back into the thread and place pictures were you want. :)

    I actually did a lot of work on strength and keeping it all straight, (no photos to show). I then found online picts to make engines right. IMG_1309.JPG IMG_0926.JPG IMG_0927.JPG IMG_1309.JPG IMG_1310.JPG

    :Bravo::Bravo::Bravo:

    This is looking exceptional!!!!!!

    Great to hear that you have fixed the issue. Since I have updated from Win 8 to 10 I have to switch browsers to upload anything on zealot. Firefox does not work (I have no clue why) but Chrome does. ;)
