Workbench: Scout thingie

I was inspired by the engine on the 7672 Rogue Shadow and thought I'd try my hand a a "vertical half circle drive". This build is about 60% complete - at this point I consider the basic shape roughed in, but all the detail work needs serious help. Plus, I need to build an actual cockpit. Still, I did say I'd post my workbench in-progress photos from time to time, so here you go.


Rear view showing the drive design copied from the RS. Of course, I'm using a larger half circle, so the styling isn't quite the same. The side engines are for atmospheric flight - I may ditch them as they really ruin the thin saucer shape I was going for.


Side view.


3/4 view - you can see the pilot is just sort of stuck to the floor. Controls will be added soon...


The cockpit does open, though.

i kinda like the engines. and the only nazi that has a chance of being trusted with a spaceship are the creme egg variety from raiders of the lost goo. they'd probably get sucked into the engines or something.
