Today's progress

Ive attached the lower deck to the upper structure as I needed to insure I had not made a major error.
As it turns out I'm pretty pleased with the scaling of every thing one of the required compromises is the thickness of the main attaching lines  all other rigging that will be done will be made using a method I learned building 1/900 scale sailing ships.









In truth I need to start painting on this thing as parts are only going to get harder to reach...


See y'all soon!

This build is going excellently - it is already unmistakable :D

I'd love to have one of these hanging from my ceiling or on a shelf :)

Been painting on this pics below the issue with selling either built models or kits is two fold,
These take a incredible amount of time to make I've logged something like 20 hours on it so far and still have a lot of details to add. Thusly a model like this would be... Prohibitively expensive.

I could make components and cast them. This would reduce the time required to build and finish. But then unless I have the ability to sell a fair number of them (50+) to amortize the cost of moulds, it's still a cost loss issue. The second element that I am considering is the IP issue. A set of models as a hobby project is one thing, an series of garage kits with money in mind is entirely a second thing.

If Muse is willing to discuss the possibility of my company bringing out a set of garage kits under a license I would entertain the possibility. But the builds would be rather different than the above. :)

Anyway pics!

This looks mightily fine! o.o
I was surprised when I read that the gun mounts are magnetic. The ship'll be just as modular as the big brother it is modeled after. :o

The nose of the model broke when trying to ram the junk off the desk.
