    A couple of sites that you can take a look at for references and colors are the TPZ web site, they've got tons of props and discussions on all things Star Trek, and the other is Trek Core which has a ton of screen caps from all of the various TV series and Movies.

    What will be the final measurements of this monster of a build? You may need to build another room to house it!

    Y'know, this build is flat-out inspiring.

    . . .

    Specifically, it's inspiring me to do a 35mm scale version of the Klingon D7 Battlecruiser. :cool:

    I was sort of thinking the same thing. Could you do the skin as a series of "trays" that each deck sits in? Not that you're not putting in enough effort already...:thumb:

    I also wonder how much a Star Trek convention (or any sci-fi or gaming convention) would pay you to haul this puppy out there as geek attraction.

    He has said earlier in the thread that he's making the decks removable and have them stack on top of one another (though how he's going to make the neck stay together and keep the saucer securely docked is a bit of a mystery).

    Wow. This is really amazing. I'm definitely going to be following this thread to see your progress on this AMAZING paper model. I really like your idea of using foam and cardboard to build the decks and the rooms on them. Tips is definitely going to be a sturdy model. I notice the hole towards the rear... What is that for?
