My apologies for being so quiet during the week, work's been busy lately. There's also been precious little time to work on this, but I've gotten a little bit done.
Thanks for the comments guys, they're much appreciated!
Since last I've scored the middle bit, clad the side-bits, built the engine baffles and gotten the canopy hood semi-built - it's just the structure for now, but after a bit more detailing I'll paint it, and add the glazing afterwards.
I hope, at least. I've no idea how it'll turn out. The hood took up about 50% of the time I've spent on this, so I'm hoping this iteration will work, at least.
And one with the bits taken apart:
As you can see, I also started cutting the wings, but I've been having second thoughts on those. I'm actually considering going for longer wings, a bit like the atmospheric Tie fighters in Rogue One, but I'm far from sure. I'd really appreciate your thoughts!
(As an aside, this is officially the most expensive scratchbuild I've done - I managed to dump most of a bottle of glue over our table, and it took off a good bit of the colour. Going to have to get a new one at some point now. It's only a cheapish one from IKEA, but still, it annoyed me no end. )
