This looks very good. Have you seen Stefan Hack's version? If not, you should. it's breath-taking. When you are done with yours, please send me some photos to share on my FB page. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/awesome.scifi.model.dioramas/
31. I decided use another wire that I found in a dumpsters. I simply cut both ends to reveal the copper wire inside. Then I measured the distance between the two Electro attachments and made the cut. I also
wrapped a much smaller wire around the the thicker one. I just thought it would add...
30. The cable attachments. I had the choice of two. The first one and the second version. I choose the second alternative just because of the way it looked.
Alternative two mounted together and base painted. Will dry brush it before mounting it to the...
29. The Electro cable that will attach to both the pod and the engine. I used a soldering lead thread is what I used to make the big cable. A thinner steel wire is used to wrap around the bigger cable. These will be painted black then dried brush with silver.
25. The overall look, so far on this pod. I think it is starting to look descent enough. Still contemplating the components surrounding the seating compartment. We'll see if I will use both or one or just leave it off entirely.
22. So I started working on the fuselage intakes. Nothing too complicated or advanced, but I thought a slick design would work well for this old beast, even though it is an out-dated design and/or engine. I saved about anything that looks it might work for me in any future builds. I am an...
21. I added an extra detail to the Electro attachments on the engines to add more interest to the fuselage. There will be a tiny cable, along with the bigger one, that connects this attachment point with the other smaller one on the pod. For me, the more detail, the better.
20. Finally threw some paint on the fuselage to give me more inspiration to carry on. As I was a little skeptical about this was coming along. So far, so good. I think. I first used a charcoal black color from Citadel, then an automobile dark reddish color as the base.
