Thanks for looking, guys! Progress is slow, but steady, and I've already redesigned a few things along the way. The structural building goes quickly, but then progress slows way down as I add details. When I get stuck on Ideas for one component, I move on to another, and eventually a solution presents itself.

I love his work too. Unfortunately, Industria Mechanika has discontinued production. Maybe in the future someone else will produce his grandiose ideas.

Yes, Industria Mechanika is moving to an all digital format, where he (Michael Fichtenmayer) sells 3D printer files of his model designs (there's a pretty decent collection already available, if you have a 3D printer, though nothing based on Ian McQue's artwork). I just visited the site yesterday, and discovered that he is selling surplus PE frets from some of his OOP kits, including the Waldo, Remora, and SkyMark at very reasonable prices. The PE parts can be used for detailing scratch builds.
