ILLUMINATUS!

Stage 1

In standard fashion I begin with cutting out the ship from its background and making plan drawings. It is quite a simple shape compared to other ships, so I was able to hit the right note with the first paper test model.

 

Photos were sent to Tony Roberts for approval and comment, then straight into the full scale build.

 

Tony made the observation that the nose section was designed to swing away or slide out to reveal the insides. I've yet to decide what to put in there, but am making it with pistons to slide the bow section out.
