    Not sure the software makes much difference. I have seen some fantastic models made using PAINT. If you have a family member who is a studen, you can get Rhino3D 5.0, the full working version, for $199 opposed to $1000. A really good deal.

    I have seen people build up fantastic models with a compass, rule, and really good drawings. Even with the software, the reference pictures are the most important. Any Blueprints that have formers on them can be made without use of a computer. It does help though. These were aircraft and boats and were painted afterwards. Many people want printed color models, which obviously is easier to do on a computer. :)

    First of all. CONGRATULATIONS! Great job!
    Is that length a little over 20cm (8")?

    You have done an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING JOB on this build!!!
    The amount of detail that you have put into this model is BREATHTAKING!!!
    All of the lines looks VERY CLEAN and CRISP!
    I can not see any flaw or mistake anywhere.
    I have to agree with Zathros. You have (INDEED) set the bar VERY HIGH with this build.
    KUDOS TO YOU ON A FINE JOB WELL DONE!!!

    KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC WORK!!!

    well, the problem with the "real" lenght of Star Trek ships is simple! I designed the ship with reference length of something over 370 meters! 3 or 4 years later they changed the length to 481 meters devil so that the scale is not really 1/1700, but possible!

    No problem...

    No problem, man... I was referring to the model's length... Of course, now that you've said the "original" length and scale, things are much simpler.
    Thanks!
