    Open the dropship bay doors Bishop!

    I'm afraid I can't do that, Ripley...

    hi are some new details of the belly section..




    some makro detail of the texture:eek:


    in this point..the positive news ends.:confused:.....after glueing the belly parts to the torso ..the whole thing began to take 2 nights to become fully visible...wall1.....maybe THIS is a negative aspect of the cube system.there must be some weight on the parts when you glueing big area. after pasting the big pars together there must be some torsion forces appear....damnwall1wall1wall1


    what I ve gonna do with it?...any idea?....Ive released some force by cutting some cubes across....maybe it will e better after pasting the rounded parts above the hangars....maybe not....who knows....:confused:

    This is probaly easily remedied by using bolsa wood inside it?

    As a suggestion, try using foamcore board inside the larger parts. Fantastic build btw!

    there are karton-papers glued by the double sided tape inside each cube:thumb:.
    the whole structure is very hard from that point:twisted:. so it makes me an amazing in my can screw such a hard construction that way:confused:....

    today is one night from cutting the cubes in the torsion it looks 20% better:oops:....i hope that th process will be continue..
