    Finally got the 2 landing bay pods done.. they were a total pain. I could not get the formers to work that were supposed to be used. I ended up laminating a beam and gluing it to the top.

    Here's the method I ended up using to make the bays. Form inner piece, laminate beam on top. I then cut the ends off the outer shell part, and formed the center and attached. The end pieces I formed separately and attached last. Next I finally get to attach the pods to the retractable beams.

    Nice WiP photos, really helps being able to visualize how it all goes together. So many models, so little time, but def keeping this thread bookmarked for when the time comes.

    Wow, very nice! Thanks for doing this. I have the 1.5 in mind as well but no time to do it for a while, and you're paving the way and pointing out all the issues I'll keep a wary eye on! :)

    One thing I notice, though.....


    Are you sure those "lips" around the glowing exhaust ports weren't supposed to recess inwards? I got that impression when poring over the printout sheets.

    It looks very impressive so far. I think that this will be my next Galactica build, having finished the Jaybats version not too long ago.
