You are one sick puppy, Duct! I mean that in a good way :)

Those are looking super - and I thought your previous work looked amazing. This is going to be one fantastic model!

Great work.:thumbsup: I had a feeling you were gonna put the NGS scanner up there.:D Your really tricking the ship out. Love it. Did a great job of creating the radar. I dont believe we saw that in the show, correct?

Is the base of the radar made out of the top of a small spray can??

i think the radar was visible in the episode "visit to a hostile plant" season three
I do rememeber the scanner but not the radar. The scanner was the piece of hardware John worked on I think the first season.Correct??(just above the hatch.) Duct has also build the radar in the back of the ship where the larger access hole is. I dont remember it in the third season. Was someone working on it in an ep, was it viewed from a longshot of the ship in space?

Don't take this the rong wae....but....Unless your pod Doors open, why add a frame that didn't exist?

Your crash doors and main door sliding are prolly above my experience level BTW.
Your EVA cable connects by the door push buttons is a superb touch too. I can't WAIT to see your landing gear treatment.

John Robinson went up on the roof to fix the scanner in the 2nd episode. The other piece was seen on the full-scale mockup in Hostile Planet. That much I remember!
