Another update and work continues on the top hull section. A lot more details, scratches, more dents to be added and streaks etc. The back base coat is for when the top coat is applied after then using a small dremmel tool to carefully scratch away the paint making the scratches more realistic rather than using paints. On the original Prop, Black plastic was used on a lot of the model to give the dents and scratches a sense of depth to them.

More detail work is being added to the engine area and a section to work on has been made using plasticard. Once again some scratch building will come in to play as was done on the top turret section using cross section books as a reference.

Here is an update on this build... yes it's been a long time and still a long way to go but getting back into this to get my mojo back..

This is going to be photo heavy I'm afraid but hopefully you can see where this is going and what's involved.. about 99% scratchbuilt..

Thanks for the encouragement guys Cool

To continue with the interior build, the walkway up to the cockpit needed some detail so more scratch building and original pads added..

That's just mind-boggling. It makes you want to be small enough to actually wander around in there.

Fabulous scratchbuilding Spencer and just as I always remember your work used to be! Whilst I'm not a Sci-Fi fan I will nevertheless be following this build for the sheer entertainment of seeing what you can do with it! Drool

Very well done! ThumpUp
