    This is my build of the Klingon Scout Ship by Conrad Mitchell. I scaled it down to 30% to fit with my Rawen-sized starships. I got to that by imposing the scout over a Rawen file and scaling down until the windows were the same height. At that size, I skipped using the internal bracing, so this isn't a complete build of this model but it covers all the basics.

    Main hull assembles as a basic score, cut, fold and glue. However, when I went to attach the bottom of the hull it didn't match up with the top and was too small. I didn't want to start over, so I cut the ends of the wing sections off at the fold, trimmed the excess off the hull, glued the wing end tops and bottoms, and glued the wing ends back to the hull at an angle.

    The bridge module is also basic. I cut the tabs off all the small parts and edge glued. The main part of the bridge I kept the tabs.

    The neck is a basic rectangle. I cut all the tabs off the rounded upper part of the neck connecter, kept the tabs on the lower rounded part, then glued that at the edge of the main hull only, leaving the pointed ends unglued.

    The shuttlebay structure is a little tricky at this size because of the curved part on top. I used a toothpick to roll the curved areas before glueing. Once the shuttlebay structure is glued to the hull, I glued the pointed edges of the neck connecter to the sides of the shuttlebay.

    The fronts and rears of the warp engines are built to slide in to the main bodies, but at this size they didn't really work, so I cut them down and kept just the edges. I rolled the main warp sections incorrectly, so now the tops are the sides. I was almost done and didn't mind how it looked, so I kept going. Final assembly completed - the Klingons are ready to take to the skies!
