this is bloody cool. I'm close to finishing my second ship, 192 studs long and weight of 35 lbs. I also used that canopy for windsheild but in transparent blue. Your Guardian and Paladin is very good and so is the colors. It's very sleek and streamlined. I'm also a big user of slopes, for the spacey angels. It's a bit shame that you didn't take time to do interior, so we could see more of your creative mind. Pay my page a visit and rate and comment.
Amazing- the blend of right side up and 45 degree offset construction is very creative. I found it hard to believe it was posible to interface the two securely and elegantly. The only thing this is missing is more shots of the interior.
