Doing it right is the only way Allen (Goodduck) knows how to do anything.
I'm sure of that and I fully agree. When I start a model based on a real-life prop or vehicle I use the real-life dimensions and work with them. Then I make a copy and rescale this to the scale I want the model to be. Since I still have the 1:1 version I can always go back and make additions or flesh out things if necessary. It is always easier to scale things down than up. :)

That looks like it was originally suppose to be that way. You are really knocking this out of the park!!!

Nice Pen Render but all I see in the center is a rectangle (and that's after of 10 minutes of looking? I think the answer as to which version this is, it "Allen's" version.:)

This is coming together BEAUTIFULLY!!!
I would be willing to tackle this project (then again, as @zathros said, it would be a life time build)!

How do you even source this material!?! Lots of info there, kind of intimidating to me. ;)
