Malcolm Reynolds has taken some new high quality shots of his delightful Tiger's Claw model. These further show off the detail of his turret guns and complete main fuselage. The last picture even reveals almost all of the structure in place on the lower "wings" and central superstructure. Malcolm says there's lots left to do, but it looks to me like this one's almost ready for her maiden voyage!
You can probably see A LOT of the imperfections in the model, which I hope to clean up before I'm finished. Although some of the roughness appeals to me, as I want the Claw to look like she's been through hell and taken some heavy torpedo hits. A ship with the history of the Claw would have undergone loads of repairs over her career.
I did some work on the conning tower/bridge area. Lots of little details, very challenging. It's nowhere near being done, but here are some progress pics.
