Good Day, My Fellow Questarians!

Another quick update - the Spousal Unit is home and she has a "honey-do" list that steals my building time! ;) ;D

I was able to finish the Bussard Collector housing and the ventral of the STBD Engine Pod.

The Housing masking kinda looks like a car door with the window rolled down. This only reinforces the idea, IMHO, that the original model makers just really didn't have a pattern to follow so they threw on random shapes and masks! ;D

It does seem to make it easier to make your own patterns, though. I have spent alot of time with my new Blu-ray copy of Galaxy Quest looking at the major sections of the hull for the more recognizable pattern. (BTW, the spousal unit it SOOOO tired of seeing Galaxy Quest !!) ::) ::) ;D

Anywhoo! Thanks as always for your encouragements and for following the thread!


ALEXANDER: This way... Wait, (Alexander turns the scanner right-side up) no, that way...

(They turn in the opposite direction.)

TOMMY: You were holding it upside down weren't you?

ALEXANDER: (Annoyed and Embarassed) Shut. up.

TOMMY: You know, with the makeup and everything; I actually thought you were smart for a second.

Thanks, Nova!

It's taking its time! It'll look all the better for it though, IMHO!

Thanks for looking!

Steve
