Thanks Steve!

Reminder to self: always put the resistors inside the model.

After already severing the torpedo wire, today while goofing around I got ahead of myself and connected the snake head lights without resistors.  The white one survived, the cannon LED did not.   :'(

The cockpit lighting and flickering (somewhat) engines look great, but no weapons.  Soon to finish up and post glory shots!

Excellent work, Master Jedi!

I'm beginning to think this isn't anything you can't build, Scott! Glad the cockpit control panel worked out. It looks awesome!

Love the piping! (Hummm...sounds like I'm talking about cake decorating!  ;)  )

The weather looks great, too! R2 looks okay. Still would have preferred Chartreuse, but since you didn't have any...   ;)

Seriously, good job, Scott. Have you posted any shots in the Modeler's Gallery?! This would make a fine addition!

Keep going!

Steve

Impressive work Scott! To get that amount of cockpit lighting in such a tiny space is a daunting task, but you pulled it off wonderfully. And the paint work and weathering and scratch work is the icing o n the cake.

thanks all! BTW, most Bandai kits don't have a lot of assembly challenges...BUT if you want to do things out of sequence, be warned!
