Thank you very much for all the wonderful words, I really do appreciate it.
I think this is my favorite angle, I only wish I was good enough at Photoshop to remove the stand. I was thinking of making a top mount for it for photography's sake but I never did.
Simple solution: Remove the mount, stand the model in its tail on a black background, run the power cord directly back, away from the camera, then tilt your camera and take the photo at the same angle. Someone with even minimal PhotoShop skills will be able to remove what little of the plug overlaps the ship and also get rid of any remnants of the background.
