    Well, BroNYCon got in the way of doing some more work for this week's *late* model. But, I'm pretty much done with drawing up the parts. I'll try to write up the cover page tonight and just prettify the parts sheets during the week (if I have the free time for that). Test build is probably going to be friday?

    Here's a preview pic of some of the parts:

    Just put on the pre-final touches (guess they're more like penultimate touches? :rolleyes:) to the model. I'll do the testbuild tomorrow and hopefully I'll be able to post pics of them on the same day.

    In the meantime, here's a small preview of the parts sheets:

    The ability to explore a Galaxy in 56 year it amazing, though unrealistic, you would have to stop to stretch your legs. Besides, I though Star Trek already did this and everyone knows Star Trek is real!:p

    I think Star Trek is a pretty cool guy. He fights Vulcans and doesnt afraid of anything.

    Test build done!

    Depending on your own scientific beliefs on the spaceborne collection of H+ ions, the model's scale can be anywhere from 1:100000 to 1:10000000 :rolleyes:

    I'll post the model in about an hour once I'm done fixing the few errors that turned up.
