Gobsmasha 3 Part 1

Here comes the third Gobsmasha.  I'll have a nice squadron of three to bring the hurt on my opponents.    I started with the shell, loosely based on a Leman Russ hull, don't forget to use gussets to keep the thing square:

And now for a top tip, save the angle cutoff you made when you cut out your side plates.  They'll come in handy later.

 Rather than fight with trying to make the panel fit exactly I capped it to the end, but I've got a bit of bulldog going on here.

You could trim that down to make it flush, but I'd rather sand it smooth with a trusty emery board.  There things are great for coarse work:

Aaaand done:
