I like the cut of your jib sir.

Buzz, that's some outstanding work and I'm really looking forward to your next update!

Again.. thanks all.

Next update. Whilst I am tinkering with hulls and filling, sanding, repeat.. I am working on the base.
So my plan is to use some Gel Medium for the sea base.. because I reckon, ships on stands just look stoopid.
So first up mask out wheer the ship will be and cut that out


Ship test plonking.. some work has also been done on the for'ard deck missile bays as well.. woo hoo.. progress

...at flank speed! >:(   (  ;)  )

Looking good so far! I've read the first of the Axis of Time books, unfortunately, thats all the Library has at the moment...I may have to splurge and order the others via Inter Library Loan...

Yes coming along.. small update. But small update is better than no update  >:(
Ok.. I have fitted some etch (uurgghh! and I though 1/35 was tiny) for sensor arrays and some of the railing and doors.
Then some detail parts like the metal storm turrets in the outriggers and Laser packs, which still need to be detailed a bit.




So next is probably painting stage and fitting stuff like the last of the railings, which I am slavishly following a good tutorial on a shipmodellers site due to not having done this sort of thing before at this scale.
And may never do again ;)

Sounds interesting!  :) Do you have a link? Got a couple of ships planned and it might come in handy (ship noob as well)....

Certainly looks sleek and fast.  What are the chances of finding some 1:700 scale figures on water skis to tow behind it?  :)
