    Actually, the nacelles are pretty much the same as before, just with different (but simple) hoods and fins. I'm pretty confident in both of those. The two areas I really want to see someone else do are the impulse deck and the secondary hull.

    Just a suggestion for when you build it too: try making one thick reinforcing strip for the pylons. Cut slits in the hull and slide it in. It works better as one single piece, not one for each pylon. Then just wrap the pylons around it and glue in place. I find it also helps to make it long enough to fit in the nacelles, which I also cut slits in.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I agree it might be a good idea since the pylons are essentially 2D in this version of the ship. I'll see if I think its necessary when I get to building though - at 1:1700 the 65lb card that I use has a really good strength to weight ratio for things like this.

    I built it even smaller, at 1:1900 and I still found it necessary.

    To quote Cliff Secord in Rocketeer, in regards to the new Enterprise model:

    It shouldn't have been, especially because it wasn't complete.

    No, I mean it wasn't final back when I uploaded the Koerner Enterprise. The version of the MKF Enterprise I built then was very inferior to the one I just released.

    Hah, I'd thought about it. It needs a little work before its ready...and I hadn't planned on uploading it since I didn't think anyone else would be interested, but I suppose I might as well.

    I'd never seen those before actually, they certainly look interesting. I may take a closer look later, but my plate is full right now.

    ^^ Most certainly. I've been modifying a few different stands I've found for my various fleet members. The more variety, the better :)
