    This is the most accurate representation of this model I have seen so far, and if it continues, at this rate, it will be the standard to which all others will be held. It is awesome. I just watched the movie again, playing in the background, till they showed the space scenes, then I was glued, just to see the ships. You've nailed it Skoda!! I hope you like your new custom title, it's true, don't be shy! :)

    This is going to look great when finished! Another great use of cardboard!! Looking forward to seeing how everything goes together.

    The mere size will be mind-blowing. I'd like to see the Rodger Young and Jan's Sulaco side-by-side... What a magnificent sight this would be..! :)

    It looks like it is going to be a very strong ship. No worrying about long term warping here
