Cygnus Landing Bay v1.0 Test Fit

After a bit of chopping, sanding and a really half-assed paintjob, here we are...

It turned out a couple of mm short and I don't like how thick the side walls are. Will be redesigning the wall parts today.

Cygnus Landing Bay

I've worked out most of the bugs with printing the landing bay detail set. Here is a picture of the latest parts...

Only one fly in the ointment -- due to printing and design tolerances, etc etc, my bay is about 1.5 mm too narrow. I'm going to do a test build with the parts shown anyways to get an idea of how they fit together and paint up. Then I'll do some cutting on the Cygnus and figure out just how much I need to tweak the size.
