Default executor scratch build

Hi every one,
well the force may be awake but I have not even been to sleep, here is my latest little venture into the star wars galaxy. The EXECUTOR, approx 30 inches long and 14 at its widest not that big but full and I mean full of little bits it nearly drove me back to sanity. please let me know what you think I know you guys will be honest it does help me to improve I hope.

regards Barrie ( the old but never asleep guy)

Impressive, I would have gone off the rails in dealing with all those parts. Great stuff.

when you are an nut case like me nothing will push you over the edge not even cutting well over a couple thousand little bits, some one has to have a go.

Excellent work. Not a great fan of some of the Star Wars spacecraft but that is one I'm surprised that no company ever brought out as a kit, one that I would certainly buy. Think I saw the original studio scale model at a Star Wars exhibition in Edinburgh many years ago.

Thank you one and all for your kind comments, it will now get me thinking about whats next, as for a company bringing out a model executor Keith YES some should have done, thats one of the reasons why I do my thing with the scratch builds building the one that other people or kit firms do not do.

Verrry impressive Barrie! What made you settle on 30 inches for the length of the model?

Incredible and beautiful. I nearly went bonkers just drawing the damn thing. I still don't know how some of you modellers manage it. Well done.

Hello mr planet 3 I settled on 30 inches as when I found a drawing od the craft on line and started to scale it up this seemed like a workable size after doing some 6 feet long models it was a nice change to work on some thing smaller and I was also able to build a little quicker.
some of the large builds had taken months to complete this one was a matter of weeks.
it was also a bit more manegable to work with some of the big models get very heavy.
