S.D. Xanadune Build Part 9 Uh Oh!

This actually happened twice before. I'm tired of gluing them back on.
On the low side of the nose cone base and top of the engine mount sections are a scalloped area with a "suspended" circle.

The laser cutting was rough and the side strips supporting the center circles are too thin! This was the third area that broke during construction.
To be honest, this was one design feature I didn't like.

So - I broke them off.
There was no way to sand the rough laser cuts smooth. I didn't like the idea of a charred up decoration on the finished model. This design is so different, nobody will miss them.

Here's how the ends look now.
