Jovian Confederation Valiant Strike Cruiser

The Valiant strike carrier. The habitation area in this model can rotate freely. According to the JC ship recognition manual, the habitation modules can be in either combat position (as shown above), or in cruising position (as shown below):
What I did with this model was to cut apart the habitation modules and then create hinges from a pin and an 18 gauge needle. The hinge parts were then glued to the main arm and habitation modules. This would allow me to freely adjust the position of the habitation modules. The modules are held in the attack position by magnets. It was a royal pain to make the joints and you have to be careful about opening and closing the habitats, but the results are worth it.
