Jeez!!! THAT'S HUGE!  :o

I think you are going to need to have a removable crane so that folks can put a plant pot in it when it is not on the table!

Thanks again  :)

The legs and lower chassis have been detailed. A coat of primer tomorrow will show it off a bit better. The legs have been magnetised (the yellow is some scrap 3mm I had) but they still need the curved fenders sorting for the tops. The body needs a bit of a sand and I think Iíve got a half tube somewhere for the underneath.



It doesnít look it but the yellow ring is in the middle.




There are panels glued on but because theyíre clear itís hard to make them out.

Not a bad idea  lol

Have you got a razor crest built to lift or is that still planed

Fantastic mate!! :o

Quick question....are the magnets in the legs strong enough to hold the full thing(plus crane) up? Would you not have been better with some sort of nut/bolt combo?

Nah, got plenty of other ships for it to haul around  :)

Combined with the Ďpeg and holeí thing going on with them, yes. Iíll probably have to do something different with the crane as itíll be quite front heavy when loaded up.

Steal away  :) This is the Revell Ďkití and Iíll be using the main body as a cargo hauler.

Got it all primed and have started drawing the upper works. Iíll be a doing a simple interior as it seems a waste to seal it up given how itís so big  lol

Iíll be doing some panels in different colours and lots of weathering  :)

Bandai 1:72 TIE for scale.

I'm telling ya, you need an alternative top with plants so that you can place it inside the entrance to your house. Folks will go nuts when they see it!  ;)

Thatís brilliant and a nice bit of background non-frontline/destructive tech that adds great depth. Maybe instead of plants Iíd build a removable/magnetised alternate bowl top for it and put nibbles into it on my coffee table. Apologies if Iíve missed it but do you have a crane youíre going to adapt or are you going to scratch build?

Keep up the excellent progress,
