Space Battleship Missouri

Had an urgent need to slam something together from some spare parts and one old model :)
Here is space battleship Missouri from incoming movie "Battleship 2: Counterattack" scheduled in 2014 :)

And new freespace-ish thing. I think it's called fin keel. What you think? Can be mounted? Or bad idea?

Go for it! The more swept back fins the better. Don't forget raking the superstructure.

It's great to see an update on your space battleship, artoor and it looks like it's close to the finish.

Go for it! The more swept back fins the better. Don't forget raking the superstructure.

Raking? Sorry , I don't get it  ???

I think he means placing the superstructure leaning back (or forward) at an angle. I don't know if that's a possibility at this stage, but if so, it would give it a faster, more streamlined look.

Regardless, I think this one is going to be a stunner!
