    Hi guys!
    THAT was my hardest build ever!:oops:
    He sent me his original pdo file of the Voyager! the scale was 1/850! i unfolded some parts new and scaled the model down to 1/1700!

    here are the build components:

    the peak of the nacelles was very critical - many small parts!
    and i said, that i build this ship with movable nacelles:twisted:

    Very nice work!

    OT, but where does a body find the checkered blocks and slabs you use to show scale?

    Thanks D Whale! My German is pretty rusty (okay, I know a little of 3 languages, and it's not any of them) but I think I found the link.

    @Kjev
    no problem! pics says all:mrgreen:

    @RedChico
    i think that is another big Star Trek problem! this model (Vorcha) is two years old and at this time was(!!!) the official length of the Vorcha approx. 380 meters! now they have corrected the size and the length is 481 meters! that means, that the vorcha class is approx. 28cm in scale 1/1700! but my Vorcha (380m) is only 22cm and i don´t want to change the model size:cry: Maybe the guys change the length againwall1

    Best regards

    i forgot:
    the same problem is with my Galor/Keldon class and some other Star Trek ships! to many different sizes for one ship (best example is the klingon Bird of Prey)!
