    I downloaded this too

    any idea what scale it is? It's a neat model of a seldom seen subject, and you've done a great job of building it. :thumb:

    The original scale is 1:100 approximately and I have reduced it to 50%

    Thanks

    I just rescaled it to 1/350 this morning. The Kaitans might be a bit difficult, but it looks like it will be a fun build!

    Looks great so far! I really enjoyed building this model also.
    Built it original size and then printed it 16 pages per sheet and built it tiny.
    Here is my thread about the model if you care to take a look. There are a couple of peoples builds in the thread, mine are on page 4.

    Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing your work with us!

    Some pieces I have made to give better image them to the model. I am making the banister rails/railings and some details.

    Un saludo

    Beautiful ship. Getting rid of the tabs and replacing them with connecting strips paid off handsomely :thumb:

    What is the length of the completed model?
