    I'm the designer that made the IXS E. Thank you for the kind words.

    You have done a FANTASTIC JOB on this model and you did this concept ship justice! Than you very much for designing it and sharing it! I look forward to building it!

    I looked up your name but could not find it, and of course, not knowing your avatar name, came up with "zilch".

    I am happy you are a member here. I sent you an email this morning, and the offer still stands. You are the "King" of joining saucer sections, they look like you have developed a way of welding paper edges. Excellent craftsmanship. :)

    O-M-G! I knew this was in the making but somehow I lost track on it. To be honest, two weeks ago I was going through my picture archive and found the concept renders of the ship, thinking what might have happened to the project. What a beauty this is! :Bravo::Bravo::Bravo:

    @Thales : Thank you for the model and the videos. And thank you for "revealing" yourself! thumbsup

    The craftsmanship of the model design is only beaten by the building skill he demonstrates.

    An incredibly clean build!

    Incredible, would you go so far to say @Thales is a Lord of the Ring? ;)

    That is a NICE CLEAN , well done design!! Will look at this closely for some pointers on a few new models ready for flattening , Star Wars Imperial Outpost Space Station, Trade Federation Outpost Space Station, and a Lucrehulk-Class Droid control Station.. all with interiors of some sort or other..

    My next project that is about 1/2 done is the XCV-330 SS Enterprise. Though it isn't nearly as complicated overall, the rings on it are even more fiddly.

    That would make for a great addition to the "Enterprise" collection.! I look forward to seeing how it will turn out!

    I think that you have hit upon one of the most wanted models, since '79!

    I was wondering when someone was going to build or design this one. Thank you so much!
