Okay everyone! What's your project for the Fantasy build??? I couldn't make up my mind so I'm planning on 2 projects...a SteamPunk inspired Airship and the "Ark" from When Worlds Collide.

The fuselage is completed next the wings and tail.... And the Main engine thrusters fitted into the tail recess.

Next time I build a classic 1950's spaceship I WILL remember there at these things called dowels... that are already ROUND!! and not start that a square block of wood!
