    Started building this model a few days ago and i wanted to share a few pics since it's pretty complicated to build( at least for me)

    This is the secondary hull superstructure.
    to place the top part, the one on top of the 3 boxes, i've added the piece with the deflector dish.
    Before printing i also changed the colors of the model, added a bit mode black instead of the grey in some places.

    I haven't changed the size of the original model

    a few pics of the saucer section superstucture, the lower parts are just are glued on thick paper and placed on top of each other.
    that makes 3 layers of paper and a very heavy saucer

    Great, looks like good instructions for this difficult model! But I bet you'd get more views if you change the title to the correct "Building the Enterprise-E"... :mrgreen:

    now adding the covers of the saucer section starting from the rear, i've added cardboard to prevent the parts from falling all around the circle. take a look at the second pic.

    All in all it took only a few minutes for this part

    sign1 Panzer, thanks for letting me know, changed the title

    the secondary hull is far more complicated, started by the middle and added a lot of internal support parts to maintain the pieces together, the flaps are not in the right position and adding internal support makes the hull rounder because the parts do not overlap.

    The finished secondary hull.

    I'll probably add extra phaser banks on top of the saucer and ventral secondary hull, looks a bit too flat.

    I'm building the bridge right now, not much to show, i'll take more pictures when i'll build the top part of the saucer. Not too far from finishing this model

    It will look good next to that Akira!!!

    It's one of Zosho's (also called Zousho) models. Just google his name like "Zosho Paper Models" and should be the first hit you get ;)

    a few more pics on this, finished the warp drives as well.
    the overall result is not quite what i expected, maybe because i messed up somewhere.

    i'll try to figure out where...........:confused:
    only the engines are missing now

    More pics!!
    on the top part of the saucer section i've added a few in between parts so that the overall result looks smoother, otherwhise the paper placed on top of the support parts would wave too much.
