New video: Scale model science-fiction scratchbuild - Part 2

In the last video on my scratch built sci-fi ship, I had built the engine and thruster section. In this latest video, I've been working on the various rudders and the mechanical sections which will mount a large aerlion.

It's slow progress, but I'm enjoying the scratch building journey.

I also discuss how intimidating I have found it to start to tackle the hull. Even though it's only a cheap, disposable bottle, and thus utterly replaceable, I have found it nerve wracking to contemplate cutting into the hull. It's another of those "once you do this there's no going back" model making moments that I find can be a real bottleneck (previously discussed here relating to irretrevably
splashing mud all over your amazing built tank)

The solution: just push on through.
