Wow, pretty cool work, Mardis!!

I particularly like your detailing the hangar bay, but all your back dating, Tartar(??) launchers etc, looking really great!

Mardis,

that's an amazing amount of scratch work, and it looks really good!! Fantastic to see how you are bringing your model to life, here once more especially the internal area of the hangar bay!

Cheers,
Jan
