So as well as the Adelphi, I've been working on this little project.


B-Wing by James Shields, on Flickr

It's based on a design by Flickr user Inthert. I haven't tried to copy his exactly, but a lot of parts came out the same anyway. Some parts took quite a bit of reverse engineering.

I started out working on a completely original design, but in the process came across Inthert's and it had so many features I loved that mine ended up following his quite closely. I really love the technique of sliding tiles into arch bricks (there are three different moulds for the 1x6x2 arch, and the technique only works properly with one of them). I also love the battle damage. And the whole engine block is just beautiful.

Hopefully lots of you will take a look in Naas tomorrow.

James
