    This just seems to get better and better - I'd never have the patience to build it, let alone design AND build it !! I'm really enjoying watching the progress.

    Hi to all
    Now I'm working on deck designing. Today just finished Life Raft Containers. They are very small (diameter = 10mm). Hope they are not too small to build.

    Hi to all
    Changed some parts designing to be easier for building. Very small size but still ok for building without microscope. :grin:

    Tonight only 3 of 4. I was so exhausted with building.

    Heart breakingly amazing.....

    That kit by Revell is in a store here in Cork City for E70 Euro's plastic... Seems like yours is going to be worth as much...


    Where do I sign up for pre ordering

    Reverse petal Alert! Hey Gil!

    Kooklik you never cease to amaze! I'm thinking that you would not have any trouble getting anyone to display your "white" beta build.............. it looks fantastic as is!:grin:

    It's coming together... Just like a real engineering masterpiece.

    And I like the idea of reverse petal, they come together much cleaner than petals in the other direction.

    Hi to all
    It's rainy here today. Good to stay at home and continue model building. :grin:
    Today continue on deck working. There's snorkel on this deck section. Check snorkel movement before glueing.

    I have been watching your reports since the beginning and have two thoughts my first is that you told us a little white lie that this is your first design. My second thought is if this is his FIRST design what will Kooklik come up with for his second model.

    This is defiantly a commercial quality model and from what I can see of the construction method the model is very well thought out.

    One magnificent model!
