    Model fully assembled.

    Central "rotating" section and forward bow section attached.

    This one was taken just for the fun of it and to get you the idea of just how big this model is in comparison to the Defender.

    This model is supposed to have 12 turrets attached, however the design needs to be retooled. It's basically a piece of paper folded in half. So until another design is done, this model will remain turret-less for the time being.

    I might do some additions in the future. This model is NOT for a beginning novice. Some redesign of the parts are required to make the model work. Areas for redesign - engines, buffer ring sections, top and bottom engine covers, and the turrets. Also, a cover for the docking bay in the front could be added, maybe with a starfury taking off!

    Overall, It's a nice fun quick build. Good way to clear the mind for greebling, with LOTS of little cuts on parts for the Defender.

    That request is not weird at all! In fact the model is pretty esoteric when it comes to directions. There were a lot of questions on how it was to go together so I just guessed on what needed to be done. I hope you enjoy the version of "guessing" I've presented here. So no problem at all.

    I'm not trying to go for a master build here. That is for the experts such as Lepaj. My level of experience is not even close. I don't know if I have the piece of mind to do a model over a two year period. This is just for fun. If we can take an OK model and turn it into a GREAT model with a few additions I'm on board with that.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your version of the Omega model.

    Have a great day!

    That's no problem in fact I've taken your suggestion to heart and have colored the white edges.

    Thanks for stopping on by and for the suggestions.

    Sly seeker, great thread!! If you open a .PDO, you can copy each p[age to the "Clipboard", and retrieve it using Paint, or, even better XNView. You can save it in any format you wish. :)

    I started this model but my son was eight and he played with every section, and at that age, three mintues, it's destroyed! Maybe time to do it again, but combine some of Lepaj's detailing. You are doing a great job, it is not as simple as it may seem.....! ;)

    Z - Thanks for stopping on by! I agree that more detailing could be done on the EA Omega Destroyer once I come up with a decent design for the turrets and some outer additional features. I think that I need to redo part of the engine assembly. All of that will have to wait until the greebling for the Defender is done. Some of the smaller cuts for the surface features which were initially hard to start out with are (sort of) getting easier. I might apply some of what was learned with the Defender to this model one day.

    The portion that looks the hardest to do (the center section) actually wasn't bad at all. Trying to make sure everything was centered and re-designing some of the parts - that was the hard part.

    I concur about the child portion - kids and cats and models don't do too well together.

    Thanks for the advice and praise master builder!
