That's a rather spot-on interpretation you have there, Bill.
It would be nice if Mister aridas were available for commentary on this as of late. It certainly appears to incorporate many NASA-progressive qualities, though I would like to see a bit more "rust and oil" in or around the propulsion system.
Thanks, Jason. Actually, it's the paint job that's the biggest hold up. If it was just modeling this would have been done months ago. My modeling is fairly speedy, but I'd rather do taxes than texture.
I will add some more wear and tear in the appropriate places as I finish up.
I haven't heard from aridas
since his nation-wide tour this summer. I've been waiting to contact him until I had more work done. I've been trying to only add detail that wouldn't have been seen in his drawings either because of angle or level of detail.
