With the engines mostly done, I was able to "Star Wars" much of the exterior as well as half of the rear loading bay. The original ships would have never been armed with a laser blaster. But as this one is meant to be in "extracurricular" service....
Wiring is a bit of a mess. But it all comes down to the single plug at the rear of the ship.
And the first half of the loading bay.
If praise and ridicule did not exist, who would you be?
Great challenge John, Browning 50's, ammo container lids, German WW2 magazine pouches is my spots, shows my limited modelling range of figures only. But a great build and a fun thread to follow, well done.

We got wheels!.......sort of wheels.
There's still a long list of small stuff to get finished as well as the potentially really, really difficult windshield to figure out. But otherwise, the scene is entering the final miles. I just need to get enough days free of adult responsibility to dedicate to the shop.
The button which turns on the lights.
I've noticed that a model-show visitor will spend longer with a model if they can exert some external influence upon it. Also, the intermittent usage of such a switch allows the batteries to last about 10 times longer.
Gear down and cemented!
lights on/lights off comparisons.
That's all I've got for now. Thanks for following the build!
