    It looks great! Definitely glad someone built it already! I noticed you had a little trouble with the saucer edge, and figured I'd mention that when I build starships, I usually put cardboard inside the saucer. Then, when I attach the edge, I just remove the tabs and wrap it around the edge of the cardboard.

    Great composition on those pictures though, and sorry for the problems with fit in some areas, I mostly fixed that with the actual release that I uploaded yesterday to my site.

    Hey Paragon, if you happen to have a pic showing that process, I'd love to get a better idea of what you're talking about with the cardboard. Like do you put in a ring to glue to the edge, essentially taking the place of tabs that would be on the saucer top/bottom? Or are your hulls practically solid? I'm having trouble picturing it.

    Paragon's card model was shown at SciFi Meshes dot com and they were dirt bags about it.

    I think it's well done.
