    The panels are attached to the hull.
    they fit better then it looks on the picture.

    Now i can start figuring out how to do the nose and the foldline to the sides..hum..

    That nose piece is more difficult then i expected..
    i formed the nose plate and sides...
    taped them together...and glued the top color on it..
    tomorrow i fold the the lines glue this on the speeder....when it fits...:-S

    The panels look great in the picture. If they are perfectly flat, then you know it is just graphics. This has a real feel to it, one that no amount of graphic texture could add. :)

    and THAT was the thing i wanted to create....

    i'm glad that star wars is a used galaxy and not a new one..
    this would be to hard with star trek.

    Nice build.
    A large model like this is ideal to add little details to increase the 'real' look of it.

    I Have started with the side engines..
    and now i'm figuring out how to scale them..
    i think i make the engine telescoping in some that it always fits.

    Damn this takes long...
    but the engines come together..
    Now i hope that they fit on the ship

    Perfection takes time, man! Your models are GREAT; I've been telling everyone that likes big scales to look at your work for reference.

    :) thanks Silva...
    it's fun to build this big...
    but sometimes it takes so much time to do a piece..but when you see the's almost always great..and worth every minute.

    i'm almost ready to install them....
