The "neck" leading up to the bridges and the engine details are great so far!

Any chance you could post a WIP parts list so I can start gathering the pieces for this beauty?

 

will definitely purchase instructions once ready. Made this account just to ask this question lol

Thank you for comments!

Small update
- fixed the issues with bridge discussed above^
- the whole "wing" section is way more complicated that I thought, I had to rebuild the side "flaps" maybe 5 times and I still haven't properly attached those around the hangar. Ideally, each section of side "flaps" would be attached with two small ball joins to make it stable.

Looking absolutely fantastic! It's definitely looking like it'll be the best Venator in LEGO! Looking forward to the final result

This MOC is truly awesome and I'm really looking forward to when the instructions will be available. I just want to share an idea I have, but i understand if it is too hard to implement. What if the long red strip in the front actually was able to slid open just like in the movies, that would be totally awesome. Im thinking that they sit on some technic hinges that almost swing open like a bus door, but that's just my idea and I'm sure there's other better mechanics that would work in this situation. 

Good luck with the MOC ;)

That was actually my plan. The main hangar doors will be openable but unfortunately I was not able to install any slide door mechanism, there is not enough space (should have built the model 1,5x bigger :D ). The way to open it will be just simply unattach each door part and attach/clip them to another marked place

Hello and thank you! @dankestmango@AZgo, @caiman0637, @MAVERICK26 

I know it's statring to be "cliché", but it's almost finished, I estimate that it's 98% done :grin: This project is way more complicated that I intially expected and I always get stuck on some intricate section of the model...
