    got the windows in. but there is a little part editing error on the front windows.the bottom peice of the window unit needs a small triangle folded over to meet the hull.

    got the rear bottom plate on,

    and started work on the deflector array and the nose. these parts are really pulling the overall shape of the hull together.

    this part of the build gets awkward. i detached the spine.

    voy 007.jpg

    because where the 2 hulls meet is an odd joint, i made a spar to pull the edges of the scondery hull in.

    voy 008.jpg

    now i have 3 basic components to work with.

    i place a realy thick card plate to hold the 2 hulls together while i glue it.

    voy 001.jpg

    so while i was waiting for stuff to dry, i decided it would be easier to attach the pylons now.

    i hope this picture will show what i mean by the previously mentioned card plate to help with gluing the hulls together.

    perhaps you could add a flap like this to each side, and again to the hull, to add both a place to grip and a glue-point.

    That's a good idea Oyl. So those slotted tabs will hold the bits together to help the builder out while glue dries. Nice. :)

    the spar i put in held the secondery hull.the plate was to hold the primary and secondery together.now i dont have to hold them together to fine tune placement and gluing.it just slides forward and back.it took the awkwardness away.
  15. hey noting any news on this

    got the top and bottom hulls together.just need to put the spine on. started the nacels when after looking at the piss poor warped finished product, having trouble finding the motivation to continue.

    maybe it needs some internal formers to help keeping the shape...

    at my size it doesnt need any formers. it is quite sturdy. it is the skill of the builder that has it warped.

    Don't blame yourself, your skill is excellente, better then mine and a lot of other people.

    I think the problem is due to the complexity of the model, as it has a very complex shape, with several tabs to be glued in turns, it could lead to small warping at each tab, not enough to be noticed before of putting them all together.

    I don't know if I explain what I mean well, bad English skills...
