    Silent-Yeah it is a tad on the small side. well the parts are anyways. It's about 7 or 8 inches long when finished. That's approx. I would have to measure it, but I'm a little lazy right now.:p

    Och, its a beaut! Very very nice build.

    I made one of the original versions (same scale but the version of the dropship in the movie) when I very first started making paper models, and I used basic printer paper (before I learned a thing or two about cardstock thicknesses). My build was sad, saggy, and uneven. Thankfully it got "played with" right after I made it by an unwatched toddler and it went *munch* in less than two seconds. I didn't have the heart to make another after all that time, but now that I see this, the urge has been replenished. thanks for the great photos, and the inspiration.
