Hi again.

There's a little update on the rear ramp. The purpose is to have the rear ramp movable so I could display it either way. For that I first drilled the hinges out, then I added magnets to hold the ramp closed in the up position. To deal with the cable, I made a little winch mechanism that is hidden in the left side of the hull. The winch is operated by a little crank just like on the real thing. I added 12 grams of soldering wire inside the ramp before I sealed it to make it heavier and therefore add some tension to the thread. The one I'm having on it now is temporary only for testing purposes - final one will be bit finer.

Thanks for watching,
