Slow. Though the new vacuform table is being built which will allow us to pull this monster. I am also filling the windows in. With some of the experience we have had with the other kits, I think it will be best to provide a template for the windows. Once the table is finished, we will be able to do a test pull of the saucer top and see how it turns out. My goal is to have it done by Fall of this year. The shuttlebay will be mastered by Mr. Canoehead, but may not be available until after the fall b ecause I need to give him time to do the master in order to size it with the vacuform shells.

Believe me, I want this done more than anything. This is almost 4 years in the making.

I will try to update as soon as I have something to show.

Scott

Wow, it has been a long time since I updated this thread. I have redone some parts (lower hull section) that still needs to be cast for vacuforming. I had the bridge dome drawn up in CAD and will have this part SLA grown. I am also having the part beltween the nacelles on top of the pylon drawn in CAD and will have that part grown as well. I will post more pictures tonight. Let me know what you guys think.

Here are some pictures of the revised bottom. I had the basic shape cut out on a CNC router. It is much better than the original and more symmetrical.

Going to make some changes to the bridge. Got some more reference photos to make it look more accurate.

Here are some preliminary pictures of the pylon cross section of the Stargzaer.

What do you think?
