    Correction!!!

    It was pointed out to me that I made a slight mistake.

    Parts 13 & 16 are not suppose to be attached to the rest of the side consoles.

    So I took them off and reprinted new one.

    As you can see here, Parts 13 & 16 will be added to the inside of the outter skin later on.

    A bit of food for thought. when starting ANY project, ALWAYS COMPLETELY READ THROUGH THE INSTRUCTION BEFOREHAND!!!

    Please do not make the same mistake that I did.

    @Silveroxide; I really like your suggestion. When I rebuild this model (maybe in 1:32 scale), I have plans on adding even more detail. I have found many more little areas that could be detailed out even further.

    When you start your build, you can add it here.

    +++ German sitrep +++

    Yes, of course! You are cordially invited to join us, mcusanelli! :thumb:

    LGA (= Little German Astronaut :cool:) confirms what Rhaven has already said:

    announce1 Do NOT attach parts 13 and 16. These parts are used much later in the build.

    Since UHU had some problems with blurry pictures I give him some sharp ones here.

    First we have some close-ups of the pedals, the seat and the headrest.

    The BEST thing is, on the little screen below the dradis you see a screenshot featuring Apollo! ;-)

    Funny that you should post this . . . I just printed it out today at approx 1:72 scale, and will be starting on it tonight.

    The cockpit shots look great guys!

    Hello, UHU! :wave:

    Thank you very much for this gorgeous model and for posting here.

    Greetings to your friend. His builds look wonderful! I am working on a portion of the Galactica hangar bay which is in scale with your Viper. I'd be happy to share it with you and your friend when it is ready.

    I too am looking forward to seeing the finished planes.

    Take care, have fun and enjoy!

    Kind regards

    Marcell

    +++ German sitrep +++

    OK, here we go with the last sitrep for today (or better: tonight :mrgreen: !).

    Parts 27 - 36 have been successfully assembled and attached. I have added small tabs on some of them to give them a broader base for glueing.

    Everything fits perfectly. It is a real joy building this model. Thank you, UHU! :thumb:

    Now for all of the fun internal components (that for the most part, only the knuckle-draggers get to see).
