Hutt Pod Racer - more engine work.
So, i've a huge area of Plasticard to detail and cover up. But, lets use some logic here. As you can from this in-scale figure, the engine is chuffin' massive: Logically, it would make no sense to have controls/devices on the upper area as the support team would need scaffolding to get to them. So i've decided to have all the real busy stuff below the middle wing, at eye level and below for humans. What to do up top then? I've decided to try and envoke Jabba's Sail Barge and emulate the panelling on the sides of that, so have cut and stuck on Plasticard shapes that are kinda similar: To them, you can see i've added my trusty sticky gems at their fronts and, in places at the back, chairs from the old Airfix Hovercraft kit. I will be adding details up here for sensors etc, but will be clumping them together and you can see i've made a start at the rear of the top wing, which are parts froma 1/44th helicopter kit.
