    Amazing look!

    I wish I'ld have the time to use your layering-technique on my SULACO, too. But I'm happy enough that I have the patience to build it "out of box".

    A lot of that you could go back and do after it's finished, if you really wanted too. :)

    The magnitude, and scale, and many other aspects of this model means that it will also be a "sticky". Too much info here. must be preserved, and easily found! :)

    Your work is PHENOMENAL and your attention to detail is absolutely uncanny.
    This is turning out to be an OUTSTANDING model.

    This is making me want to build one of these! Great work so far, Skoda! I think we ought to sticky this thread as another "inspirational" thread, like Ekuth's Galactica.

    With the size it must be at, I'm not the least bit surprised. Cutting out tiny pieces, then bending and gluing them while not exhaling very heavily is fairly time consuming work.

    Tell me about it......

    It's not just breathing too heavily that causes problems with working small parts...

    I have a cat that wants to play....

    Therefore, I print multiple copies...:rolleyes:

    :eek:

    Wow.

    I know why I didn't start this add-on till yet.

    By the way, I once started to try to record the building-time for the SULACO, but I lost track somewhen in autumn last year. Do you have an idea how long you worked on your build till yet?

    Nice looking drop ship! I can't tell from the photos- is that the "Bug Stomper" or the "Smart Ass?"

    Your patience, skill, and perseverance are inspiring and your work never ceases to amaze.
