Very nice! And as Shannon said, I too, know what it is like to have to scrap parts to make something else larger. It's only too bad I have to do that every time I want to build something new (well, I've managed to keep the White Fang, but that's about it)
For a ship of that size, the detailing is perfect. A variety of angles on the fuselage and wings keep the ship from looking blocky, and the placement of colors is perfectly arranged to avoid monotone or confusion.
Great little MOC! Nice combination of clean areas mixed with greebling elsewhere. I like the modest color choices and the downswept wings as well. It' would be nice, personally, to see it studless (just my own preferences coming through here), but regardless, a nicely done ship!!
