    You did a GREAT job on this model.
    It looks like a very simple version of the shuttle from BSG.

    I agree about the similarity. It was a fun build and the cargo ramp actually closes as well.

    This outfit has copied virtually everything they have. They made their copies more boxy. His "Expiditionary vehicle is a "Rip Off" from Aliens, and many of his other models follow the same pattern. I am amazed he gets away with it, but he changes it ust enough to skirt the law I guess. There is something about his methodology that really bothers me. It's something between piracy/plagiarism with the facade of 'Hey, I'm a nice guy!". So many people offer incredible models for FREE and this guy charges for his un-original designs. He now has a "Pay what you wish" set up but requires an email. This is one of the biggest reasons I decline to release my work. There are no models of what I have designed (in paper at least) and someone like this would just usurp it and what would I get, the pleasure of subsidizing someone elses business/life? I'll pass.

    Anpu, your building skills speak for themselves. Great job! :)

    If that business works, I could be a millionaire!
