Freaking out about Sci-fi & Moives

Akira Class, Part 25. Hull Panels on Sacuer

I have not had much time to work on the Akira this week. (The Sun has finally decided to come out in the UK.)
So here is another small update.
I have cut in panels for the top and bottom of the saucer. This took a lot less time than normal, reason for this that I have found a new technique that worked very well.

With the panels now done, I need to re-cut in the windows. I will lose one or two, due some of the panel edge lines. I also need to rebuild the life pods as there was some issue with them before.
I also need to re-build the thrusters around the edge of the saucer so this matches the rest on the ship. I also need to add details into the trench around the side.

  1. Nice work, those are looking great. Paneling can be a PITA but it’s worth it in the end. 🙂

    • Thanks Chris, Yeah it can be, but the saucer was a lot more fun to do than the secondary hull.
