    So thanks to D-whale's reminders I have resurrected a project that started years ago.

    I have finally finished creating the internal support structure. Getting various parts to interlock was a fun puzzle!

    I'll be starting (er... restarting) the test build soon. Watch this space!

    That's the general goal yes. Size controversy was a head-scratcher. I decided to go with a station that is 1,451.82 meters wide. The model should be 85.40cm wide when done.

    Small update, I only have the Upper and Lower Pylons left to unfold. The road ahead is daunting...

    ohhh I already love it and cannot wait to see it built. my question though is if this will be to scale with that "tough little ship"?
