Thanks...or do you mean it looks a bit Mickey Mouse....?

Those turbolasers are cute Cheesy

They are quite dinky...

This evening I've been mostly tidying up rough edges - will make a start on the V-beams tomorrow.

Thanks all...it feels like everytime I take tiny steps forward, I seem to add more things to the "to-do" list.

Some minor detailing out of card...




A start on the anti-ship guns, which still need tidying up...




...and a start on the V beams, six down twenty-two more to go.  Once I've added the facing to the hoop, it should hide the untidy finish on the beams.

That's the sort of progress that gets Deathstars built. Vader would be pleased with your efforts!

My first thought was that if I get stuck, and run out of time, was to add a tiny Darth Vader, inspecting the lack of progress and call it a diorama...  Laugh

Just found the missing hoop, so I can get on with the next stage.

Looking great! The precision required for this to look correct is probably beyond my patience but I certainly appreciate it in others,

Great work on the V struts.  Cool

I can't see any pencil marks: are you working by eye?

All by eye. The hoops aren't perfectly round, so there is a substantial degree of "making it fit".

I made a few test pieces and measured it all out by trial error, to come up with something that looks ok.
