I miss new episodes of Spaceman Spiff.  Both versions look great.  Don't stop!

Ahoy!

Thanks for the encouraging words everyone  :)

I did some more work:


I added the hull plating then cut and sanded it to shape. It's far from perfect but it will do.
After this I glued in the engines. I'm thinking of adding some shielding for the underside of the exhaust. They seem to be a bit too exposed for my liking.
Then came the fins which gave the whole thing that Spaceman Spiff vibe  :) I also added some damage to give a reason for the current state of the craft. I planned to make it bigger and do some detailing inside with exploded tubes and wires. However I have forgotten it when I was doing the plating and glued blasted thing on... :( So it is a smaller hole and you don't see much inside.

The next big thing is the cockpit. I need to make a not-entirely-circular panel which slopes inward, and I'm not really sure how to do it...
I'm tempted to just put the cockpit canopy on and smudge it so one cannot see inside, but I really want to fiddle with the detailing inside. I have the whole Friday off, so if I will tray to do it, and if it's no good I will just hide it with the canopy.

Well I finished building the ship today.
After refreshing my memories about some basic geometry I managed to make a template for the panel. After some cutting and gluing I got this.



Then came the detailing.





The pilot chair and the steering wheel is on a separate base for ease of painting.

Lastly I added the damaged canopy.



I will paint it tomorrow, then attach it to the base and do the texturing. Hopefully I will be done by Sunday afternoon.

This is great! :-* :-* I hope that you have a not-Calvin or Spaceman Spiff mini to go with this.

Sadly I couldn't find anything that would make a good Spaceman Spiff, and I didn't have time to convert something.
That said, if anyone have some suggestions for possible miniature candidates feel free to share it.

As for the build the painting, weathering and base is finished. I'm really curious what will you think about the finished product :)
