    Hi folks!
    I want to share the following pictures with everyone! For a contest at Papermodelers.com i made this space ship, known from Star Trek TOS: "Space Seed"
    It is a combination of two kits!
    The first kit is from Ulrich Prahn:

    http://www.haenssgen.de/uni/trek/stmodels.html

    Original Scale of this kit was 1/600, but i needed only the nose of the model (the single white part)! it was easier to built than the nose from the 2nd kit!
    the kit is reduceed to 35%!

    The rest of the model is from the second kit from Robert Merkstallinger (aka "Falwin"):

    http://jleslie48.com/gallery_models_scifi.html

    the kit was original in scale 1/250 and i reduceed it to 14% of the original size!

    After the built I layered also some extra details and then i painted it with a brush to show the highlights!
