Blake's 7 Ore Ship - underside
Turning now to the lower sections, you can see there's a whole mass of shapes in the sphere area.
Trouble is, part identification is proving to be difficult. I know there's bits from the Leopold kit, but i've been buying up too many kits just lately for, at best, 3 or 4 pieces i need (have you any idea how many motorbike, helicopter, ship and plane bodies i have now?).
That, and the fact that i'm now doing my own version of the craft, means i'll just make it up as i go along and try to approximate the feel of what's going on.
Made a start:
The white piece is a cut-down upper hull from the X-Wing that i got for the R2 and engine pieces.
The grey ribbed lengths are from the Airfix B-59.
And the long grey shape is from Airfix's Refueling Set. Detail on the original doesn't go all the way back to the tanks, but it fits just right, looks good, so why not?
