    Awsome job on those mini ships Stephen!
    Instead of scaleing them down further wouldn't it be easier to scale up the Galactica to 1:450? (joking).

    Thanks for info, Stephen! It occurred to me that such a large model must require some sort of internal support, not only for the major hull segments (head, main body, engines) themselves, but to each other!

    I look forward to seeing what the parts layout will be like.

    Stephen: since the scale of the 3-foot Galactica model is close to 1/1400 (AMT did the Star Trek: Next Generation ships (Enterprise-D, Vor'cha)) in that scale, I think that Vipers scaled to your ship will be exceptionally tiny; so small that it will be hard to discern specific details. Wouldn't a Viper be only a few millimeters long in 1/1400? The toothpick idea isn't sounding too bad here!
