Looks very nice! Instantly recognizable! Keep up the good work!

It's looking good so far Bricksandparts, but I think the beta 1 versions front end is more accurate, and it looks better it's less jaggedy and smoother. I really love the beta 2 version's tail fin though.

The problem is that I'd have to lower the entire ceiling on the inside. I'll see what I can do.

This looks very nice. The greebling on the side is great. This must be huge as that is the slave 1 cockpit *oh2*

Great job :thumbup:

It’s coming along nicely. Good job with the greebling amidships. I recall the bit inside the walls of the dorsal fin being more sunken in, though. :wink:

I see you’ve changed the hull to be more curvaceous, in spite of the straighter lines of your previous beta having been more accurate. Is this a variant on the film design? While I’m certainly impressed with how you’ve shaped the forward end, I’m not sure whether a more uniform look in the spirit of the original source wouldn’t be more aesthetically pleasing. You may also want to consider adding flex tubing to the SNOTed brown pieces at the prow; it would definitely bring the detail at that area up to par with what you’ve done amidships and inside.

With your adeptness in achieving curves, the underside is sure to turn out promising. I eagerly anticipate further progress on this fine creation. :thumbup:

It looks like the real one for now! :thumbup:

I'm waiting for your next effort around the bottom of this transport shuttle :classic:

I see what you mean, however it just looks a bit craggy and doesn't really flow, maybe if you raised the canopy a bit.

Not a ship I'm really familiar with but this is looking really good so far :thumbup: . I too prefer the smoother look of the front on your 1st version. I look forward to seeing what you do with the underside.

I must say that I favor the beta 2 front end - even though it is not as accurate. Perhaps you could achieve the slight angle on top if the cockpit by using technics and plates?

In any case, good job :thumbup:

Thanks for all the feed-back! I've been working on the center piece and will try to get the back side to a more accurate display. Also I'll probably use the flex pieces on some curves. Yet again thanks for the suggestions and I'll do my best to fulfill them. :blush:

Nice looking build, if you can pull off a real build the dark tan bricks would be amazing, well done :thumbup:
