    the first one was Clever´s Excelsior! he had sent me his original MQO-files! I modified some parts, unfolded the model, scaled in 1/1000 and printed in 1/1700!!!

    4 ships in 5 weeks? I can't built one in the same time!!!! :(

    BTW, excellent builds, as always D-WHALE!!

    Nice to see my small little Klingon ship again, but at this scale I guess it should had been a challenge to build (well, Gomidefilho told me that was easy to build it at the same scale for him, but I didn't believe :D )

    All those in 5 weeks, WOW. Don't you have a day job, how did you find time to get them all done?

    Look good, all.

    5 weeks?! Oh, I am such a sluggard. It's posts like this, with these great looking models on display, that remind me to actually work on projects rather than research "how to" build them.

    Good stuff here. Congratulations!

    Hi guys!
    thanks, thanks, thanks! 5 weeks is a long time for me for 4 models (actually there was 5 models, but one has swastikas!!!) normaly i need 2 weeks:twisted: but for changing the Mqo-files from Clever´s models and unfold this, i need more than 2 weeks!!! and then: every model need a stand!!!wall1 and to have an idea for a stand is the problem! I like the klingon base too, but the federal base for the excelsior and the Ent-B I also like!

    @paulhbell
    i have no day job, but i have a 1 year old child:mrgreen:! thats my job:oops:

    swastikas are not a problem here - they are a historically significant emblem. If you cant post them because you are in germany thats understandable but there are no laws disallowing them here.
