    Anyone who has been following this thread would agree that this model is a perfect "Model of Merit'. A thorough, and more engaging a thread could never be. The end result, a fantastic model of "UHU's ASO USSC 2001 DISCOVERY". The pics speak for themselves. A few pics are here, read the thread to see how this all came together, and see the rest of the pictures. A Fantastic job!

    Congrats Dan! :)

    I completely agree Zat!
    So many of us followed the birth of this baby that now it is something like a "son of Zealot"!
    I feel like an old uncle looking at this little child (well... not so little after all) with a tear trying to come out (but I don't want you to see it...).
    Great day! Great Dan! thumbsup

    Fantastic build! Congrats on finishing such a large and detailed model. It looks like a studio model or an actual shot from the movie.

    I'm pleased to say, that I also made 'Picture Of The Week,' over at Papermodelers.com, with my Discovery model too. :D

    Ok, I know, I'm bragging now........:violin:

    But, I'm enjoying the limelight!!!! :D :D :D

    And, of course, ALL my build threads are exclusive to ZEALOT! ;)

    Paper TP.jpg who? Only kidding. It's an obvious choice. Happy that in a roundabout way, my suggestion about water forming influenced you and a few others whose masterful use displayed in a place where I'm persona non gratis, prevailed, grassyass (gracias):mooner: Really, you deserve accolades on that wherever you display it and people would be nuts not too. :).

    Zathros keeper of Big Machine reaches far into the void!! :Congrats:
