    Very nice, Jan. You should be very proud; she's beautiful! The way you're holding her in the first picture reminded me of a story I had read. In it, they said the Sulaco was originally a design for the blaster rifle but, after further deliberation, it became the assault ship. Now I see why. Thanks for sharing you pictures. - Tom

    This model looks a bit small to be in 1:500 scale. It should be approx. 144 cm long... just look how much bigger Jans version will become in 1:430.

    Well , in Wikipedia , they say that the length of the Sulaco is 385 meters.
    The length of my model is 75 centimeters.
    So the scale is 1/513.
    Is not it?

    As often with filming miniatures there are different opinions about the length of SF ships. Jan Rukr, who is designing an incredible version in 1:430, takes the also given 735 meter length for true, as I do. Just look at the film and do some math (comparing stuff like the humans, the dropship, the dropship bay and the ship itself), 735 meters works for the Sulaco.
