    jaybats is nice and all but if jan made one you could blow it up to 1:1 and live in it and there would be a 302 parked in the hanger waiting for a joy ride. his skill lvl is just unmatched... when i die i think i want to be buried in one of jans sulaco's

    Wow, Jan. This is going to be very beautiful. Excellent texture work. You really have captured the look well.

    Oh my ghid, Jan; I am in high anticipation of this release! At 1.7 meters, it's just the size I wanted. Take that, Halcyon 1:1700 scale pencil-eraser! sign1

    I think I shall have to try building that tiny dropship some time, and see if I can do it like Paladin did with his build. Yeah, I'm a glutton for punishment. :roll:

    Wow. this gets better and better. Any chance you will be releasing this kit in sections, making it a bit easier to chew? I imagine the whole thing at once will be a bit too much foe many to cope with.

    no its better if he finish's first so he can spot any build problems if it goes out in parts a recall could upset everyone who started building. just my thoughts

    There will be sections of building in the model...I call it PART GROUPS.
    Every part group has its own building plan and limited amount of parts.

    One part group is two side plates with logo....another is bottom cover plates ....another is main body cubes..there will be lots of small groups in the model...:mrgreen:

    Two groups are finished (those four cover plates)...Today Im completing the main body cubes ,but U know...nobody is error-free:mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:.
    ...Ive done a little texture error...it is small , but has major word in the lool
    of the finished part.wall1

    My god...

    with the "position of part group" plan I began to realize how big this model REALLY is.

    I guess too big for my hobbyroom.

    Mh... mabye I`ll scale it down a bit, to 1:600 or so? That would still be 1,22 meter. 71,7% of the original model size.

    Jan, do you think this is doable? I mean: Will the small parts of the model be big enough to be build in 1:600 also?

    Otherwise... showing such a huuuuge and wonderful model on a modeling show will d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y be a show-stopper... :mrgreen:

    Mh... Jan, will the model be constructed in a way that it can be seperated to be transported?

    Otherwise I`ll not even be able to get it out of my hobbyroom (under the attic). :eek:

    Just tell your significant other that you paid an exhorbitant price for some modern art and hang it on the lounge wall!!

    Just crazy......

    But i would start from the inner backbone just to be sure that it would hold structural together.

    keep in mind, this is a space-vessel, not something which is to be griped by blanc gravity
