    Nice lines! Very neat. How about a few more pics from different angles? Great start!

    That's a fabulous job! And it's not an easy model, either. We downloaded it in hopes my son could do it but he's not quite there yet.

    Did you do the articulated legs version?

    I did the same build with the articulated knees - yours looks better overall though :)

    A nice clean build of a challenging kit. You're off to a running start. Welcome to the hobby.

    Thanks to you all

    :grin: Thanks for the welcome and the ego boost, i would like to try the articulated legs and also double the size of the model, but i haven't worked out how to do that yet. currently trying the USS Reliant which i am finding quite taxing with my limited skills, but i will persevere and see what comes out.:)

    Not so tiny

    :cry: Hi woodengraver and thank you for the welcome, i have seen some of your models on this site and have trouble seeing them let alone building anything that small. What you do to these models is not modelling, it's a work of art.:-D :-D

    Thanx:oops:
    You CAN do it. Just print again at 75% and build...then 50%...then40% then35%...etc. until someone's jaw hits the floor then you can stop! lol

    It is all just practice for that really detailed deluxe model I want to build someday.
