My best wishes from me, too! I hope you get well soon!
The model is looking better and better! The cockpit reveals the size of the ship because the original designers just copied the cockpit, bubble canopy and interior from the Viper Mk. VII.
You've done an outstanding job on this beauty Zathros. I had been working on modifying the one that Silveroxide did some time ago. The problem I have been running into is the crazy belly of that thing. Even with some pictures of the movie ship, and the resin model, every time I build my prototype, it just doesn't look right. It's hard to explain, but the underside is not shown with much detail until more recently. Have you been able to get enough on that to make it work? If you are so far ahead on yours, I can defer everything to you, you're obviously doing better than me!!
