Neo Allied Avenger

I present yet another rendition of  6887 Allied Avenger.

This one is built by yours truly, and actually was built quite a while ago, but I needed to cannibalise it for parts (namely the 1x2x3 slopes) for my Dalek.
I am very pleased with it visually, but it wasn't the best ship to swoosh. Was quite fragile, and tended to fly apart with vigorous swooshing.

More pics here!

It's been a long road

Looks like it has an infestation or something.

But the end is now within sight. Heck, I'm only a few feet away from the finish line. I am talking about my Dalek, of course. My largest project ever. And will probably stay that way for a long time. all that stands between me and completion, is one Bricklink order consisting of 53 1x2 grill bricks, 6 1x1 tiles, and 4 6x6 quarter domes, all in black. most the missing pieces can be seen in the following picture:
Yeah, that bit of blue and yellow has to go.
Yup. with the exception of those 73 parts, the Dalek is done. 13 months, and much money spent, but it was well worth it. Now, if only I could get some sleep. Hard to do when you are afraid your creation is going to exterminate you....
