Pure modelling genius!! :bow: Excellent work on the model and the spoke is such a good idea, i've got quite a few in my bike parts stash and might have to use it one of these days! :cheers:

CANSO:
Thank you guys! :thumbsup:
I'm happy you like the model. It's in fact just a prototype - some details were meant to look in a different way, but the accident with the glue changed my plans.

Yes, Falke/Griffon is one of my favorite designs. I never built one even if I have some in the stash (shame). But there are several antigravity platforms with the same layout: twin booms and single propulsion. For this particular model I was actually influenced by a ship called Triakis from the computer game Wipeout:

I wanted to open some cockpit windows and have a pilot, but the time was not enough so I opted for the Falke-solution (no glazing, sensors only).

 :thumbsup:
I can't believe you did all that in so little time.  Are you related to Dizzyfugu?  :unsure: ;D

No I'm not and we follow different pats ;). The time was not enough and I wanted to do much more than this - I'm thinking of rebuilding the model later. But on the other hand if one has the parts prepared and has a vision what to build it's not that hard to put them together. The slowest process is putting/sanding and honestly this is the part I don't like at all.

As I wrote before the spokes are really small technology gems. The spoke nipples look also very good when exposed. Multiple spokes (parallel  to each other) make a very nice picture when put in a different context e.g. supports for a round platform or stringers for a structure, not covered by skin.
Cheers!

Thank you, guys!
Captain, you're right about the bits - as I mentioned before there were more than 100 parts altogether and probably 35-40 are the bigger ones (body halves, booms, "shoulders" made of helicopters etc.) The remaining 60 are greebles taken from models, toys, everyday objects etc. Some of them remain often hidden, unless detailed photos have been done. My favorite greeble was not shown very well in the finished model photos. Here it is exposed:

Under the nose, between the 2 guns there is a small element 15x15mm with 2 spherical "sensors" and 4 rectangular "intakes":

This in fact is a backpack from a Warhammer 40K Space Marine:

I simply love this part! :wub:
