    Here's some assembly of the pod. I used a wood rod for the frame and plastic sheeting for the skin. JB Weld is a great glue for the skin

    OK, you asked for an update, well here's a few photos. This is the top of the pod with window and small jet cones. There's still tons of detailing to do.

    Wow, that is really coming together nicely. In the next pic of the whole thing like that, could you put 3PO and/or R2 next to it to show scale?

    Looks great... A job steadily looking better! Can't wait to see it finished with 3P0 and R2 there!

    GOOD JOB!
