Look Ma, No Clamps!
So finally after a week's work since I got the idea to use a defusing panel for the deck of the superstructure I'm able to demonstrate the 3D aspect of the chest area.
Utilizing the waffle design recesses the hanging structures plug right in, require no gluing and so are readily removable for transporting and storing.
I wish I could say I planned it that way but no, the idea just came to me in a fit of desperate inspiration.
Another unplanned bit of luck, the corbel's outrigger buttresses were spaced just about perfect to span the corners of the deck almost as if it were designed that way. :Whew:
So with this accomplished and the front overhang somewhat justified I can begin the command compartments and design the main weapon arms this weekend.
