2/22/2010 - It's another long-haul build, mostly involving improving the appearance of the vac-form parts. One long job was replacing the trailing edge of the main hull platform with the detail that belongs there. Another problem, the reactor deck piece, was solved by the "Survey Class Impulse Crystals" replacement parts from DLM.
