It's, um, fairly obvious. I guess the worst problem is that you MUST choose a version to display - either all together or all separate. Since the pieces don't fit well, you cannot make it an articulated model displaying one way, and then moving it to display the other way. You have to make a decision during the build, and if it's to be one ship built together, then you MUST grind off some details to make the parts fit together. It just won't fit together as it sits now.


¿? But I held the master in my hand. I thought the pieces fit just fine...? I'm not doubting you that the problem is you must commit to how it's built.* I'm just realizing I'm so confused... Either I didn't understand Eric or I'm thinking of another master.

And no, I wasn't drunk at the time :P

* I'd be stupid for me to do so. You physically have the master and could take a look at it whenever you want. I'm going by some recollection from a couple of years ago when I had a brief encounter with the master

I've already made my decision, I'd build it permanently together. My 1/1400 one breaks apart and that's good enough for me :)

To be fair, this is not entirely true. Some of us have posted what we've done with our 3D printed models

I couldn't wait any longer. I just placed an order with Shapeways.
Diemos (to go with my Phobos) and a BOP with wings straight.
