This looks like it's taking shape . I've often considered doing a similar build , so your results may inspire me to take the plunge !

Exactly ! The reference is less than plentiful . As both a fan of Star Wars reference books and the Clone Wars show , I'm surprised that there's not been a nice "Coffee Table" book relating to the show . The first couple of volumes of the DVD box sets had some good production artwork books , but the last volumes gave up on this idea .

I have seen this built once maybe twice before.... But built poorly...
Now its about to get the Ken Skiffington treatment so will be Fanbloodytastic......
I have a cross section book including the Twilight as I once thought about it... But alas my skills are too bad to do it any justice.
This is the book...
Star_wars_Incredible_Vehicles1.jpg

Has some really interesting builds in there Ken.. Search it out buddy.
I for one would love to see more of your Star Wars builds...
Mr Thundergod would too I'm sure..
Take care, Happy Modelling..
Regards Andy.

Oh, of course, that time again soon....
Where has the last six months gone??
Only seems like last week you came back to your building frenzy...

Enjoy what time you have left at home buddy...
Take care and stay safe ..... We need to see the Frigate built Sir...
Amazon may do the book, got some good stuff in there, twilight, Falfa, Acclamator, Venator, Barc speederbike, light frigate, slight of hand, various bits and pieces a model master like yourself would build with ease..
Happy Modelling...
Regards Andy...

Great progress . Seeing this develop is like a master class in scratchbuilding , seeing the basic shapes evolving into the recognisable form of the ship .
Brilliant !
