Mr. Average

I think it looks a touch small, and the radome on the front should smooth into the cylinder a bit more so it’s more like a smooth rise in the front instead of an applied “bump” on the surface.

Ya, I’m with ya, I think I have the top of the hull too high, but can’t mess with that without redoing the whole hull. I think the turret could be 1mm taller. Doing the radome like so was a conscious decision after some testing. When blended more it tended to look like a printing error and do weird fractal things at the edges. I once hand-made a model of the DH in 1/76 (before buying a Wonderfest kit) and it is waaaaay easier to get to look right by hand! I do sort of like it having some definition though, will make painting a bit easier and adds a touch of character to my eye.

Ah, I see the layers are perpendicular to the shape of the dome top and bottom.  I can see how that would get weird – probably way easier to just do it the way you did – in my world of small scale modelling insanity I’d correct with putty, but looking at the various model versions I see it done a lot of different ways – this could be the Y-615C, with an updated radome with a dropcast shell to improve armor resistance.
