    Cool.

    I should have built mine with the bay open, too, but I was afraid that the filigree parts would break too easily while being transported. So I decided to build the "bye, bye, Alien Queen" variant instead (bay door closed, airlock door open).

    This is beautiful work. I'm just starting my own example and your build will serve as a good guide.

    One question: You are building at 200% original size, correct?

    Thanks for the inspiring work.

    I would re-fashioned in two things: Sulaco to the A3 would be increased only by 25%, suggesting that it should "only" 2.2 meters dýlku. A final scale A3 model, this coefficient is also changed downward, so it came out somewhere around 1:365

    That is a complete kit, scene, diorama, in itself!! That would upscale nicely. I could see that mounted in a ceiling, with the right lighting, and being very effective! Wow! :)

    Y'know, I was thinking that It would be nifty to download just this section and build it as well.

    I was thinking that having it drop down on a pair of fishing lines would be cool too!
