Thumb is finally better (had to have it stitched!), going to be starting again tomorrow - HORRAH!
Sadly had to buy some more kits for detailing all Tamiya 1/700th ships (if they're not in the 1980 catalogue they're not being used), wanted to use Junyo but couldn't see on the web whether they were old or New tooling?
Going to be some hard core building next week!

Sorry about that, what happened to your thumb? Obviously you cut it, modeling?

My own stupid fault.
I was scoring thick ABS all set to go and had forgotten to put my glasses on. Couldn't be bothered to stop, put them on and re-line up the score. Then went straight through the top of my thumb, loads of blood hanging off by the skin.
That will teach me!!!!

Sorry to hear that! I’ve done some of that too while carving some resin and the knife slipped and carved the tops of four fingers on opposite hand, to the bone, got stitches too and they are numb and itch for no reason.

UPDATE!!!!!!

Finally my thumb is better and I can get on with this build.
Well I realised while I was trying to get the most done with the end of my sliced thumb taped up. That I hadn't put the mounting points on the model. Luckily everything was only tacked into place so I was able to tear the model apart and start again.
So...
I have added the top and bottom mounts (16mm connectors), and built up the front end where I will have to sculpt the nose section, but have left room for the balconies that are called out in the sketch (remembering I am using Joe Johnson's art only - NOT Star Wars Armada's MC30 miniature).

Tomorrow I will start on the underside and layering up the filler into the top and bottom nose area's.
I will also work up the tail area and plan out the engine arrangement.

I've been sourcing kits for detail and now have a really good selection to work from. From the sketch its obvious that Joe had meant this miniature to work in with the Rebel Transport miniature as seen in Empire as the sketch follows similar style points.
This must of been one of the first rebel cruiser designs done; before Lucas created the Mon Calamari with their 'Pickle Ships'.
I'm going to go for detail as a cross between, the Pickle Ships, Medical Frigate, Rebel Transport and Executor (the model is in scale with the Executor miniature and will be displayed with AMT/Ertls 15" Star Destroyer which; I have to save from the scrap pile!).

That will then be it until after Xmas. I then have 8 weeks to get it complete - :l mao:.
Can't see that happening.

Default Re: Another Star Wars Mega Build on the way

With Xmas out of the way managed to do a bit more...

Engines cut from pipe and glued together (the model will have 9 engines in total) and the engine locations put into place.
I also worked up the bottom and top front area;s which will now be skinned in P38/Bondo.
The Akagi hull was used for placement only, being replaced with custom built centre section.
Going to work on the side hull sections, before sorting out the underside detail areas.
Not going to get this done by March, so will take some time out to build a copy of Brian Johnsons ILM ESB X-Wing (as well as working up a MPC half scale), I also want to refurbish and re-detail a Jedi Couier model I built more than 10 years ago - so I have something to take to the show this should have been shown at.
