Battlecruiser - getting started

So here we go with putting on plasticard panels and also the tried and tested Go-Fasta stripes.

I want to have a slab-like feel to the sides so won't be putting anything on that juts out too far. You can see that i've put on a rounded shape, which is the underside bit to a tank turret. Thinking that maybe its an airlock, i scribed the plasticard vertically underneath it to suggest doors.

What i don't want though is everything to be 90 degrees to each other and pretty bland, so will be having a bit of variation in places. This applies to the front, which i don't want to be just a flat surface. Was thinking of building a command deck area out from this bit and my son's suggestion that it looks a bit like a Jawa Sandcrawler has me thinking i'll try and emualte the front of that. A bit.
