Okay, I have more finalixed the engine prototype, and even went on to build another.

It is actaully quite sturdy, contrary to looks, with all eight sections of the engine attached to the "wall".

Also, I have begun work on the bridge.

Not much too look at, but you get the general idea of what it will look like. Probably will throw a bunch of anteneas and radar dishes and such on top.

Okay, finally some actual progress.

http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/ElephantKnight/Space/Ships/WIPs/Polaris/polaris_section_1.jpg
Section 1 is now mostly done (Minsu the roof, and whatever details need me added. I foresee Section 2 being smaller then originally planned. I may have over-estimated my collection.

The shuttle that will be in section 2. Not much to say, other then it is a mixture of a typical Blacktron II cockpit, and 1479

I really like the shuttle. I like the size difference that makes it separate from other blacktron ships.
Section 1 is looking good, but I'd consider adding some side-facing studs so you can break-up the box-wall shape of the sides,

Been a few days since I actually did this, but more work has been done.

This is probably close the the final length, so you ought to be able to get a sense of the size this is going to be.

Okay, the main hull is now done.

I need a bigger worktable

Still to do:

-Interior. Most of the interior still needs to be built.
-Exterior details. Things like guns and antenaes
-Minor adjustments to hull. I forgot a few things (Landing ramp in particalar) that need to be worked into the ship.

Not going to get much done on the weekend, as I'll be spending it at my paretns house.

Yeah me too! My bro and I have been working on a castle diorama and we're needing to add another gray baseplate but we don't know how because our table's full!
