I've made some real progress tonight, having finally managed to reach the lower level of the platform. The going is about to get a little tougher though, as it appears the model used in the film has four unique panel sections, which means no more mirroring my actions for the time being. Not the biggest issue, but it'll slow me down for sure.
The good news however, is the opposite side of the wing is nearly identical, which means once I finish here I'll almost immediately be able to begin on the cockpit. Which are sure to bring its own number of challenges.
