Wonderful work on your Andromeda Si !  I'm not familiar with this series of Japanese SciFi ships but this looks pretty neat.Great work on the photography,by the way. 
For the fun of building art.

thank you guys!
I like these ship designs - some more than others of course, but in general, they're quite cool. They're a nice change to the conventional SW or ST ships although I do still like those too
Bandai did a great job of these kits and are easy to light. You have to cut away some of the internal bracing but its easy to do and doesn't affect the structure of the hull.
Thanks again for your interest guys

BTW/Out of Curiosity.

Have you seen the life action version of Space Battleship Yamato?

I have it on DVD  ;D The acting is a bit off but the CGI is amazing. I love the earth ship designs, especially the opening scene ship. The Garmilla ships aren't anything like the 2199 ships which has its good and bad points
Worth a watch of you haven't seen it.

I have indeed seen it. Been meaning to add it to my collection at some point - love the Yamato launch sequence. ;D

the nozzle I made for the Andromeda is based on the live action version. It's way more interesting than the stock version with those stupid little fins coming out the sides.

Si, did you scratch build that nozzle?! Astounding!

Lovin the build!

Keep going!

This is really beautiful work.  Unfortunately I chipped a tooth when my jaw bounced off the desk upon first viewing the final product. 

Very nice!
