    So, remember like five or so years ago when I started paper modeling and was only marginally worse than I am now? I think one of my first models was the UNSC Pillar of Autumn, which I have since redone countless times. Well, I believe that this should be the definitive version of that model, finally.

    Instead of the old three-foot version, this one's in a more manageable scale at 1:500. All the parts have been drawn up; all that remains is the testbuild, which I hope to do...soon?

    Anyways, have some screenshots:

    Sorry for the late replies; bogged down with registration for next semester, and the academy's wifi is about as reliable as a pool cue made of boiled spaghetti. Buuuut, I'm gonna use this moment of wifi-lucidity to post some build pics. Hopefully the model will be up before the end of next week.

    I think this will be built many many times. A lot of those parts should be doubled and inverted to cover up that white. It would give a bit more of a completed finished look. You have supplied everything necessary to greeble the heck out of this thing!! :)
