    "The Temptations" "Ball of Confusions", your model builds, showing continuity (except yours is for the positive). song is great too, the continuity it shows is still going on though. Here's the song:

    That is one good looking saucer section. Did you use thicker cardboard? The surfaces really look smooth, and the shape is well defined. :)

    Thanks Zathros, I used the formers as per Zosho's design. I was poking around on the "other" forum and found a design that is 1:1000 scale (modified Zosho). This one is big, but that will be huge! basic eyeball comparison of the design puts this one at about 1:2000.

    Progress has been delayed a bit, I moved into my own place over the Easter weekend, had to leave the model stuff at my parents for now. I'm doing bit by bit, currently working on the lighting for the saucer :)

    I figured that it would be easier to get the lighting and final construction done better by attaching the saucer base to the secondary hull; here we go :)
