    I have started to build the Starbase designed by MTK. You can find his thread and model here:

    http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=170070

    The top section (dry dock section) is about 11.5" across. I am guessing that the length will be about 18" to 20" long. This will be a good size model.

    The top had an opening, could be for some interior details. I won't be doing that so I printed out a extra section and covered the opening. The top sections seemed a bit floppy. I glued some thin cardboard ( from cereal boxes) to give it some added support.

    Next I glued to two halves of top sections together.

    Then I will start on the the lower sections.

    Looks great! Can't wait to see it done!

    This is on my list to build soon, I'll attempt a tiny Enterprise to go with it as well.

    The middle and lower sections have been assembled together.

    Then finally the model is completed.

    Very nice. That looks like a good size. Not too long or wide.

    I've just about got the second one finished and will have it up as soon as it is finished. There is a third one and perhaps a "Nightside" version for those that want to use a lot of black ink.
