    Nice looking and good size as well. If I'm looking at the unfold page correctly, that is 4X4 pages, is it not.

    Very nice work. That'll be a really nice addition and complement to Jan Rukr's starbase model.

    Supposedly the saucers that make up the bulk of Jupiter station are Ambassador primary hulls (that is, Enterprise-C saucer sections). That may or may not speed up the design, but thought I'd mention it.
  15. More Pics Saucers rounder.
    and the tops done

    now I know where i found the schematics of the jupiter station:

    Ex Astris Scientia - Starship Gallery - Federation Space Stations

    (where else :twisted: )! its not Hi-res:cry: but maybe good enough!?


    Btw: I saw, that you made the saucer rounder:thumb: just a tip:a circle has 360 degrees!!! for big circle use 36 angles, for medium circles 24 and for small circles 12 angles or less!
  17. thanks for the tip d-whale and the link to the schematics
