Below you will find todays progress. Slow and steady. This part is mounted between both the fuselage. First attempt was without internal formers. The images are from the second attempt with internal formers and some details for the bottom part. Just some minor changes are needed to make it perfect.

That last part was excellent. Formers are really good to have. They keep the model in the shape you want it. They make for a very strong model, if you drop it, it's easier to repair. Those engines look fantastic!! :)

Thank you Zathros this time I needed the formers for sure. I have to touch it a lot with all the details glued on it. And if the fuselage and the wings are fitted without the formers it will break for sure.

The formers also allow you to run around the room making all kinds of lasersounds, and you don't have to worry about ddamaging it so much. :)
