    Hello everyone, I recently built Gary Pilsworth's 20 million miles to Earth rocket at smaller than pdf size and I used copper paper for details. The grey paper I used is thicker than normal card stock, so it krinkled a little on the small parts. Also I had some printed sheets of my Icarus burnt and unburnt that I had to test build. So im sharing them here, thank you.

    thanks Zathros!
    Except for some small details, finished this off.
    slide out back hatch on sky 1 for the battery and switch, magnets join sky and diver.
    Threw in some lights just to see.
    Used gold paper, and it's 1/2 size.
    Next time doing Gary's at full size and I changed the color to a brassy kind of brown.

    I think I posted this before but this was my test drawing on the model. I have a much better one I am looking for to build.

    It is a very retro looking ship.

    This ship reminds me of a Klingon Ship meets the George Pal version of the "War of the Worlds" ship. Now I wonder what a fusion of a Klingon with a martian would look like....

    I kind of picture this alternate universe retro starships with just a 4-6 man crew and the Klingon kind of a Ming the merciless type of character.

    The ship would scare the bejesus out of me if I was in an Orion capsule and it pulled along side me! :)

    My cat knocked over my RC 1701 model normal size and the soldering broke on one nacelle so I threw this together.

    then STC [star trek continues] had part one of their final episode with a Romulan bird of prey. I have pestered them for that for over a year, its nice to see them do one!

    and a clean up of the original, cant confirm what they lit it up for the test as, but I have heard it was light blue domes with amber ports. most people go with green domes and white ports.

    Ming-ons is perfect!
    one of Spock's mental conceptions changing a splintered timeline I would imagine the Retroverse being.

    Thanks! I'm just going with running lights and impulse and sensors. I might do the nacelles but I just don't know if I will.
