    as reference i used pictures of the original studio model:

    i know that the model looks a bit different, but closer than the most game models which i saw!

    Little update: I made the rear end with two arm holders! the other two holders are next! the holders are linear movable! also i thought i should make some pictures with two ships in the same scale for a size comparision

    You are doing a GREAT JOB on this project! This is coming together nicely!
    I like the two ships that you added to the photos to show size comparison.

    Nice work, as always.

    Hope you have a spare HD! Hate you lose this one. That Bajoran ship was sweet too.

    well, hinges are posable and i hope i can do it also with the arms!

    The Bajoran vessel was just a side note in another thread:
    http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/alternate-dimensions/8144-another-ds9-7.html
    I hope, that i can release it for Christmas, but no promise!

    the Maquis was a base for the Yeager Class! here was the threas about it:
    http://zealot.com/threads/ju´day-class-better-known-as-maquis-raider.173696/

    The instructions for the Talarian, Tamarian and also the Karemma are still in work!

    Marko,

    Pretty cool. You know I have followed your threads for years and understand why it takes a while for the instructions. Your build sheets are very detailed and make construction a pleasure.

    Glad to hear that the Marquis wasn't a total loss. I must have miss-recalled the event. I do remember that you'd lost some ship in the HD crash but must have gotten them confused.

    You still pick some of the best subjects; the ships that many people fail to appreciate. Looking forward to a German Christmas...

    Back about your Talarian ship, I thought it a shame that the Nxt Gen didn't do more with them.

    @D-WHALE I have to say that this is AMAZING! I like how the arm is fully articulated.
    You are doing a SPECTACULAR JOB!!!
