The geek's heart in me skipped a beat when I saw that blue over white - great colour match. Looks fantastic.

Glorious!

Makes me wish I could add half the details you're putting on it to my little Cosmo Fleet SDF-1. Maybe I'll try in the future.

The shape and colour look amazing!

"A lot more details", he says... That's got to be the understatement of the day. This SDF-1, once completed, deserves to be displayed prominently in a museum.

I really like the number bay, did you use some decals? Or you have just painted them?

so the ship itself is pretty much done now... :o

very few tweaks left to do, some weathering still needed in some areas...

also the various guns still need to be finished and added... :rolleyes:

so now its the city's turn for some much needed love, and ill try and incorporate as much as i can,

as seen in SDFM TV, also trying to get the sense of scale to be felt :D

Unbelievable! Absolutely amazing work, my friend. Truly an inspirational build!

If they could cast something and mass produce a kit like this, you'd be a very popular man.

some more pictures! ;)

made a "shoulder" hangar (not finished yet) so it can be displayed without the docked ships...

also pretty much settled on the appearance of the large guns...

Ok "Flash", now you're just showing off...shoulder hangar indeed :lol:! On the level though, this is some seriously impressive work done @ a rate I still can't comprehend!...It's like BW & HG kissed and made up, decided to fast track a live action movie together, hired you to create long shot miniatures, and MechTech to do the up close working/functioning Daedalus shots (as long as Kicker773 allowed his model to be commissioned for the film)!

Wow - how long is this?

Around 85-90 cm...

Haven't made the final measurement.... However the scale might be revised,

To around 1/1500 instead of 1/1600.
