Battleship - the three sections

Okay my modelling chums, leaving you tonight for a weeks holiday but thought i'd show you where i'm up to with this beastie.

And here's the three separate sections put together. I toyed with different shapes for the engine area, mocking them up with Foamboard, but eventually decided to try and follow the lines of the main section. The connecting piece is interesting. Martin Bower sent me a bunch of greeblies last summer and in there was this. Its nothing more than a length of EMA tube with BIC disposable razor safety covers glued all round. Very simple and very effective.

Here's a closer look at that piece, and the very end of the engines. I was going to go with a traditional engine bell affair but then changed tack and went with this - two pices from two Starfury kits glued togteher. I was going to busy up all around them, but am now going to put a frame around it to just show these two.

Hey mate, I have a spaceship model I started building well over 10 years ago that I'm willing to give away if you want it ? It's far from complete but I can think of no better person to give it to, you can turn it into what you want, I've attached some pics, it's a bit more worse for ware than on these pics, some of the stickers I put on for panel FX have started to peel but otherwise it'll only take a bit of work to clean up.

If you could leave a post on either of my blogs with your e-mail address then I'll mail you and sort out getting to you, don't worry I won't post the e-mail address.
I've probably got some other junk I can throw in too.
