Default Skydiver Scratchbuild

Many years ago, I scratchbuilt a Skydiver. I've not been totally happy with it but have decided to overhaul it. The Diver section didn't need much to get it acceptable. Its only problem being that it is rather heavy! (I put whatever I had into it, it is mainly MDF). Sky One is next up for improvement but For now, here are some pictures of the diver section.

Default Going Down (Glub-Glub)...

That view, looking down at Diver from above, I thought especially impressive - we so rarely see her that way! Better shows off her overall bulk and complexity; Sky 1 looks downright sleek, by comparison...

Thanks folks. I've reshaped my Sky 1 now. Taken a couple of shots. I'll need to set it up with the Diver section next.
