"Dammit, I love this squadron! That's about all I have to say about that, though I am particular to your photo of the attack from head-on -- what I like to call Marduk View. So, boy, when you gonna find me some Imperial ships to launch torpedoes into?"
Hehe, as soon as I can, Rip. I'm waiting for the Class 3 and 4 ships to be released, so that the 523rd has something a bit more challenging to go up against. Note, the radar dish on the Class III was made from a piece of greenstuff that I rolled into a ball. I let it cure and then cut it in half. A piece of brass rod and done! With the other half I made the dish for Aunt Sally (the Class II with the large dish offset from center of the nose. You can see her fourth from left in the foreground of the third pic below.)

|Here is the squadron in attack formation, what Capt. Sagan so lovingly calls, "Marduk view."|
