31045 Intrepid cruiser
A fairly straightforward model. I started with the outline with the plates. To attach them to the main body I chose to use the curved slopes to keep things in color. From there on the body followed quickly. The top came at the front first and so on until the back. I took at bit more time on that section, although that way mainly on the engine part. The movable tail wings were an easy solution to fill a gap in the structure, something I've done in several other models. Each time I try to do it a little bit different, but for some reason the element works every time, so as long as it does so, I will use it if fitting. The final model has a fine color scheme and interesting dynamics. It is certainly different from my previous designs and it pleases me that I manage to prevent repetition.
