Thanks all, appreciated!

Squeezed in a few more details tonight. Added a few pieces to the sections, filled in some holes in the pods, and I cut away one of the hatches. I created a new one to make it appear opened. Just in case someone feels like peeking in I made a few seats to put inside. I think I might be able to put in four... cramped quarters Wink



Left to do:
Add hydraulic lines
Add maneuvering thrusters to pods
Make 'Out of Order' sign  Laugh
Make landing zones scenery if there's time
Paint

I spent today working on the maneuvering thrusters, which gradually progressed from standard building, to annoying, to cursing.

First, the thruster element sat a little too high, making it look like the capsule was too wide to clear the iris. I took the pods to my workplace and used the belt sander to sand them down. Then I glued them in place and primed the pods.

When I got home, I discovered the pods wouldn't slip into the arms without some serious wiggling, which was scratching off primer and would surely scrape off the paint. I had glued the thrusters too far toward the middle of the capsule.

Naturally, my glue job was a good one and prying off the thrusters was not an easy task- I'd scraped the glue point to help the bond.  Laugh



Much to my chagrin the glue point tore off the underlying pod in some cases, and left an unsightly mark in every case. Anyway, now I'm cutting thin plasticard to cover the blemishes. The pic shows the thrusters in the new position.

Until today I thought the hard stuff was done Wink

This is probably the last photo before the deadline. Everything that is done is primed and ready for paint.



My intention is to continue with the landing zones, but I haven't even started them yet. They're more associated with 'rapid and violent stopping' rather than 'flight' anyway  Wink

really love the look of these and was thinking about something similar and then got sent a Instagram pic of these, and now thinking that these works of yours could really work well to enhance. So many ideas now.
