BLAST Orb ship model kit progress...

Here is a quick snapshot of the Orb ship model kit from my book BLAST, page 103. I'm doing this in collaboration with Industria Mechanika. Michael Fichtenmayer is now adding the last details as I'm not a great 3D digital modeler and I did not have the time or patience to add them in the digital modo model. You can see by the image that it's a healthy size and I think it will look great all painted up. I'm eager to see it in person and how Michael will finish it up. His other works are fabulous and I'm sure this one will be as well. The Orb and the front blade are both hollowed out so adding an interior and interior lights should be much easier for anyone wanted to do a little extra work to sweeten the build. We will also be adding a figure to the model like in the illustration. More images as the model nears completion.

I've seen the model on the industria mechanika and It struck me!
Great model! I hope to get one and create a diorama.
The model is somehow futuristic but with painting option being nearly limitless, I can envision it as 50's retro. One question, though: how big it? Can you give us any rough measurement?

Thanks
