Looks god so far, can I ask how you intend to fly it. Will it be an R.C. glider or just a "throw it and see" or do you intend to power it some how ?

Keep y-orion this one.....

Oh my goodness, look at this! I had the Airfix version all those years ago, basic build and hastily painted, but this is different class altogether! If you're going to build a classic ship, why not go for the biggest one possible? That's a lovely touch regarding the choice of name as well.

Please keep us posted with more pictures so we can gaze lovingly at this beautiful ship,

Kindest regards

Patrick

Awesome, I can't get over the sheer size of the thing !

In some cases the bigger the model is the more stable it is in the air. . . .sadly that isn't the case for this Orion. . ..she's very unstable in flight.. . . .But that was expected, and I'm going to get her flying properly. . . . That's a promise!

Thankyou Slate!:D
