Looks much better shortened!
Something about the way the angles line up on the front seems odd; can't quite place it.
Thanks! I agree, the transition doesn't sit well with me either. Someday I'll figure out a better solution.

It's a big improvement ( not to say that it wasn't good before , read my previous post ) , but to make it perfect you still need to work on the front a bit ....
Again , it's one of the best mocs I've ever seen , I just hope to help you make it the best
Thanks! As I said above, I totally agree the nose doesn't work, and any ideas would be very much appreciated!

You really did an excellent job on this RGS MOC 501st Commando
, this one is very uniquely-built and highly-accurate too in terms of the proper smoothened surfaces. This is certainly one of the best RGS MOCs I've seen.
I've planned on doing this type of SNOT build too before but the main reservation I had is the angling of the 'sloping surface assembly at the top' (the plane carrying the cockpits). I couldn't tell by your pics but is that assembly sturdily connected to the body? Or does it just rest on top of the slopes?
Thanks! In the inner structure there is a hinge which holds to cockpit in place, and other hinges hold the curved slopes running down the side.
