Figured I'd chime in here with my build so far.

I have decided to do my build using styrene and making a R6. After looking over the material and a few comments on the boards here I feel confident that this will allow for the best bang for the buck and still allow for the extra goodies to be installed maybe even 2-3-2.

After a few days work and learning a few things about styrene the hard way I am starting to make some minor progress having all 6 disk cut. I will be starting to cut out the strait pieces next but having a few issues cutting a strait line on the practice piece (learned to do that part the hard way Mr. Green ).

I am already looking well beyond the the point I currently am thinking about how to work in extras like 2-3-2 and things like a periscope and LFD. Since this is planed to be an R6 this may be an issue since the "pie slices" on the top of the dome are smaller and there are more of them. Any comments about this would be greatly appreciated as would any others  Very Happy

Got a bit more done and noticed a few areas that did not line up all that well. I'm hoping this does not complicate things later on.

I had certain areas of mine not line up exactly. As long as it looks good with the skins on and all clearances are met, it should be fine.

I knew I had seen a R6 build with a periscope before but couldn't remember where. I just came across it again and thought I'd post a link in case it could be any help.
