    Disney sues over paper model

    That's the headline you can look for, this model is fantastic.. looks every bit as good as a studio model. keep up the good work.

    :) looks like i make great pictures :)
    but from close you still see that it''s paper...

    i have started with the engines..and they become larger.

    After a long view at the orginal snowspeeder..
    I saw that the canopy was to small.
    With my first canopy it looks like it sits to much to the front of the speeder, so it's to small.
    Now i build a large canopy (just 1 side)...which is more the same size as the real snowspeeder...and it looks i think better.

    With the small canopy the snowspeeder becomes to big, inscale to the figures.

    i hope i can fix that with just a larger canopy.

    So far your build is on par to a studio model. Great details overall.

    The rear end of the Snowspeeder came out great! Better than any other I have seen. You have one heckuva snow speeder there! :)

    I always GREATLY ENJOY following your threads. You have always (time and time again) produced some of the best STUDIO QUALITY WORK with your models, and this is no different.

    Man, every time when I catch up on one of your build posts I think "Why do I even bother".

    Your models looks absolutely stunning and i'm still far far away to getting even close to your level of skill.

    It's inspiring though, you show what is possible and I wanna learn how to get there. Not in that scale though my wife would kill me :mrgreen:

    Keep it up Dnalor it's a pleasure to read and watch your posts.

    ShadowHawk said it all. I know that this is a completely differente saga, but after ShadowHawk's words, all I can say is "SO SAY WE ALL":thumb:

    finally an update

    i made the 2 engines..with the size i think is correct.
    Now the 2 front boxes for installation of the guns..
    And i have to find a nice rod of the guns.

    It's really starting to come together now. This will look amazing once you are done.

    Let's hope that it becomes a snowspeeder...
    At this point somehow this becomes a little big custom build instead of out of the box.

    i hope that i can get the dimensions right of the speeder.
    At the back i have to cheat a little..some how the cooling ribs look big.
    but i can't rebuild them. because they are attached.

    a little update..
    Somehow my break time at work is to little for building.
    But i have to lasercannon holders ready..(the front brown boxes)

    And i'm looking for the right angle for the engine attach between the back and the front box.

    I know this is gonna be another of your awesome builds by the look of things.

    Question though, are yo using pvc tube for the lasercannons ?
    I can see why, it's much stronger and rigid then paper.

    Great work.
