Lego Thunderbird (in Progress #2)

Finally decided to upload these pictures. Summer semester has started and I'm watching as all my time just evaporates from the intense work load.
The Thunderbird Lego jet is still in progress. I thought I could finish it, but there is still much to be done on the hull and undercarriage, the multitude of nukes, torpedoes, bullets, and missiles and finishing the turbine portions of the engines. But so far, it is somewhere over 25 lbs, over 4 ft long, over 3 wide and over 2 high. It is now larger than most kids who build with Legos- (one of my goals achieved! :P ). In the first photo, again, another size comparison as well as you can see a white Lego frame built. It is there temporarily so that I don't knock it over when adding pieces.
So, until I return back to Iowa for another break, the Thunderbird will just have to wait for another time to be completed!
