Thank you both!
I have to say that at 1:50 scale, it is a bit challenging (especially when it comes to implementing the finer details and greebles).

Here is another small update.

These are the parts for the sponsons (Pulsar Laser Cannons system).

The sponsons (Pulsar Laser Cannons system) are assembled. I also raised some of the details.
I have to say that (at this scale) these are very fiddly. So, take your time while you are assembling them. Not only that, but be prepared to print out new parts, because it is very easy to rip/tear the parts.

The sponsons (Pulsar Laser Cannons system) are in place.

Here is the canopy.

I adhered the canopy parts to large sticky/packing labels.

Then cut the parts out that needed "windows" and attached them to both sides of clear acetate.

Yes, well done on the video and kind of leads into a question I was going to ask anyway.

In a month our two I plan to have a go at this YouTube malarky and host a modelling channel.

Would it be acceptable to mention Zealot within the vlog as a 'go to' for all your papercraft needs?

Thank you very much for the kind words and encouragement. This is something that I am still learning about, myself. So, as I progress, there will be changes along the way.
That is a very good question. Thank you for asking. Yes, by all means. You can indeed mention Zealot. It will help garner more potential members.
I am looking forward to seeing your content.
