Haven't updated in a couple days, but things are progressing along slowly but surely. I've got the C fitted and glued up into 3 components and started the D. Everything is washed, trimmed and such but unlike the C the fit is terrible. Not a single part is fitting quite right and the gaps are going to take a lot of finessing to get them to look right. Ahhhh, just when you think a plan is coming together...lol. To top everything off, my compressor just pooped out on me. I ordered a new one and it will arrive next Tuesday according to UPS.

Well everyone, finally got my new compressor in.....better late than never. Got to say though, when it rains it pours. My poor 15 year old Dremel kicked the bucket  :'( . Everything is all glued up and I'll be puttying sanding,puttying, sanding, ect and so forth later today. Boy acrylic has gotten expensive, it's jumped 30 bucks a sheet here in NY to $140.00. Oh well, it'll be worth it in the end ;D

I found my baby D's fit quite good. What parts are you meaning? And as for the C, yea she goes together quite well too, its the seam round the saucers edge I don't much like  ;D
Wil, the Kiwi Borg, in training.

I'm not a complete Borg, some pieces are missing.

The fit was bad throughout. But I managed it.
