Theming update this week! I hung up most of this spacecraft from the ceiling. Going to have to find a good (permanent) way of lighting them.

Finally back to posting updates! The asteroid/tunnel is basically done now, and I can get back to working on the track.

The project is looking great! Glad to see you are back in the swing of things. The NOT A CAVE looks awesome!

Also, your "shirtless roommate" ... dear lord. :lover:

^LOL, I'll try to get him in the videos more often (after all, he did promise!)

Spent this week shaping some twists and turns up above the station area. I'm pretty happy with how its turning out, but I still need to strengthen the supports before adding the theming to cover them.

Once finished do you keep this project as a permanent installation? I'm curious the time frame on how long these last, especially with how much effort has gone in already!

I move around a lot (and I get other ideas I want to build). However, I have put more time into this than any other model. So I'll guess that this one will be up for about 6 months once completed before I tear it down.

Working on a little track and a lot of theming. Getting the sound to work was a lot harder than I wanted it to be.

I’m going to agree with what others are saying and tell you that this thing looks awesome! I can’t wait to see more progress! At this point, what would you say is your best guess for completion (give or take a few months)?
