Scratchbuilt "Infinite Loop" Starfighter
The upper (and lower...trust me, they're there) ring fins and the scoops are both formed from two pieces of BT-60 that have been cut and interlocked to form these pieces. The wing tips are made from the plastic tips of safety darts.

Estes Mini-Shuttle Clone
Estes Mini-Shuttle clone. The cargo bay door is labelled with the names of the lost crew of STS-107. Not as much of a tribute as they deserve, by any means, but it felt right.
Estes Orbital Transport, In Progress
