Ever since I saw the movie a couple months ago, I've wanted to build Serenity. Comparable to the Millenium Falcon, it isn't an easy ship to build. I was hoping to draw some inspiration from other models, but I was surprised to not find very many. Still this was a fun challenging build.
Yes, the engines (more like the entire wing) pivot for landing and maneuvering. The nose was a different color, earlier on, and I didn't feel like taking another picture, after I changed it out.
