Steps needed to produce three more!

Drill out plastic piece.



Cut three more of each aluminium/brass tube piece



and assemble.

I love it!  This is starting to shape nicely sir, I love the R2 unit, and the work with the brass tubing will take this up a notch, so to speak.  Keep up the great work and keep having fun!  Cheers from the other side of the pond.   8)
That model really tied the room together.

A busy Easter Friday, holidays equal model time!

Kit parts need opened up.


Engine bays opened up for leds.


Lots of drilling!


Four engines ready for lighting.


Wings opened to reveal interior.

Nice work on the lasers and the engines Liam! Lots of drilling and filing... I had thought of doing the same on my Viper, but took the lazy route instead with etch. ("Photo-etch? I need no steenking photo-etch!"  ;) )

Drilling and cutting out those engine cones looks like that was a pain in the tush!!
