The parts for dome are designed. I will do a build tonight and try and get final upper pictures out ASAP. It's been pandamonium. Pandas every where with this virus panic.

Stay safe fellas

The lower deck is a lot more cramped than the blue prints show. The center area is only about 6-7 feet across, and all that outer ring in the hull for storage is on the bottom deck, for the most part. [Even the live set was off on the elevator alignment.]

Dome interior is drying. I'll mount it and the last top plate tonight. I am trying to decide if the top plate should be removable. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Upper dome pictures. I will install a ring below the skin piece for proper alignment when removing and replacing for interior view without lifting the full upper skin off the floor. You will still have that option. Mine will be built both ways. Glue blob inside dome will go away when it is dry lol!

Enjoy

Your hull looks fantastic!!! that really looks good. I made a jup2 with the elevator hatch open, and could see most of the interior.

Final pictures of the upper section will be available by tomorrow. the upper section/phase 1 model files will be published asap. I know you have all seen me note that the publish product is soon. I can tell you I'm really in the short rows and with some minor last tweeks it will be days only in coming.

Enjoy!

Take your time, this is not a race. I could have released my Viper template when the test build was done but chose to wait till Rhaven finishes the Beta build. And that was a wise decision. We have already hammered out some things to make the final template even better. ;)
