    And now for something completely different a large scale Colonial Shuttle.
    Though these have been done before and many are posted on this forum, I cannot access them even when I dl them, I invariably get some type of error because I'm running IE and not one of the other programs. At any rate, here's version one of the LG Colonial shuttle. Ver 2.0 is right around the corner and will be "No Lines."

    Here are a couple of progress pics. Since I'm doing my own Beta build, I'll be changing the unwrap on this, reversing the textures and editing the blog as well as this thread.

    Hi MTK, great model so far. I think it could use some internal formers to help keep it's shape and add stability, particularly at this scale. :)

    Thank you both. I suppose it could use some formers to stiffen it up.... I'll consider that.

    I'll be updating this soon, I'm modifying the unfold and trying to make it easier to get all of the parts a little more organized and simpler to build. Same with the MK-II.

    Nah, not formers... What you need in that scale is an interior!

    There was a nice sketch or concept art showing the side view and how it broke down the interior space, the front door, the side door, the upper deck, etc. Maybe it was part of the Drex files?

    Anybody have a link to that?

    Looks awesome! Roughly what scale would you say it is?

    Thanks. With regards to scale.... I was just trying to make it big, for my fingers and as bid as could fit on 11X17" cardstock. I'll have to ask Mark, the designer of the actual model, what scale it's close to.:mrgreen:

    This beast is back on the top of my list, I kind of let it go by the wayside and got involved with a great many other projects. I'm not starting another model, or finishing another model until this is 100% done. I worked on the unfold and justifing the textures appropriately last night and as soon as this is complete I'll update my blog and provide a link. I'll be sending the corrected pages off to print as well....

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.:mrgreen:

    OH yes, I agree, an interior would be really cool on that design. Good work my friend!!
