    It was pointed out to me that I made a slight mistake.

    Parts 13 & 16 are not suppose to be attached to the rest of the side consoles.

    So I took them off and reprinted new one.

    As you can see here, Parts 13 & 16 will be added to the inside of the outter skin later on.

    A bit of food for thought. when starting ANY project, ALWAYS COMPLETELY READ THROUGH THE INSTRUCTION BEFOREHAND!!!

    Please do not make the same mistake that I did.

    @Silveroxide; I really like your suggestion. When I rebuild this model (maybe in 1:32 scale), I have plans on adding even more detail. I have found many more little areas that could be detailed out even further.

    When you start your build, you can add it here.

    Yes, of course! You are cordially invited to join us, mcusanelli! :thumb:

    LGA (= Little German Astronaut :cool:) confirms what Rhaven has already said:

    announce1 Do NOT attach parts 13 and 16. These parts are used much later in the build.

    Since UHU had some problems with blurry pictures I give him some sharp ones here.

    First we have some close-ups of the pedals, the seat and the headrest.

    That looks REALLY GOOD!!! Everything looks so clean and crisp!!!
    I am really going to have to build this in 1:32 some day.

    The BEST thing is, on the little screen below the dradis you see a screenshot featuring Apollo! ;-)

    Funny that you should post this . . . I just printed it out today at approx 1:72 scale, and will be starting on it tonight.

    The cockpit shots look great guys!

    Hello, UHU! :wave:

    Thank you very much for this gorgeous model and for posting here.

    Greetings to your friend. His builds look wonderful! I am working on a portion of the Galactica hangar bay which is in scale with your Viper. I'd be happy to share it with you and your friend when it is ready.

    I too am looking forward to seeing the finished planes.

    Take care, have fun and enjoy!

    Kind regards

    OK, here we go with the last sitrep for today (or better: tonight :mrgreen: !).

    Parts 27 - 36 have been successfully assembled and attached. I have added small tabs on some of them to give them a broader base for glueing.

    Everything fits perfectly. It is a real joy building this model. Thank you, UHU! :thumb:

    Now for all of the fun internal components (that for the most part, only the knuckle-draggers get to see).
