    Got the hull done for the Defender. :) I'm lovin' this ship now, I wasn't too keen before. Though it is closer to the original series ships than anything else. As well as the Astral Queen that is.

    I have just 2 engines and three cannons to go now.

    I'm thinking of designing a series of display stands for these ships. Something that you can display the ship on where the ships attach to the stand with a magnet. That way the ships can be detatched for when you have a big kid moment and want to fly the ships around when no-one's watching. LOL!!

    Furuta stands?? From the Star Trek mini ships?? Looks good. Puts those models into scale if they are.

    How are you finding the Defender??

    Your build of it that is not mine. LOL. Not fishing for compliments or anything. Just thought you'd have started a build of it. You seemed keen on that one.

    actually they are die cast stands for 1/72 scale planes.no the models are not to scale.colonial 1 would be too small to build to scale. im getting ready to start defender.itll be a slow start with going back and forth to hospital.

    I noticed my Heavy Raider wasn't up there. Hey Nothing?? Any chance you can send that to Chris here for hosting in the Downloads section?? It should be cool now there's a way around the 2Mb problem, shouldn't it?

    Got the engine blocks on. They go on well, if you take your time. One tab at a time. :( Looks Ok though.

    I started one of the smaller turrets/canons that sit at the front of the head, under it that is. These are the hardest parts to build purely because of their size. Glad I didn't go the whole hog and include the smaller turrets. Phew!

    Looking forward to getting another mesh to work on. :) :)

    BTW, This model is around 18" when fully built. This is the standard version I released with no rescaling.

    Mining Ship en route!

    All the unfolding is now done. Just applying part numbers and editing some images to act as instructions. :)

    Hi all. There's some great work being done here. The Defender is looking really nice. And the shuttle is good too. Nothing's Heavy Raider is fantastic.

    defender part 5b the easy way

    i found that the double fold over itself part to be more complicated than needed. first take prt 5d-c and cut the double fold peice off.

    then cut this peice on the fold line and discard the smaller peice.once 5b is attached just glue the triangle piece on as a seperate peice.

    OMG these ships look fantastic. That heavy raider blew my mind...nice build, nothing! I can't wait to make these. Can't wait for the Mining ship. Who's taking on the Gemini transport? I've really like that design for some time. When and where can we get these?
