    You crazy?

    It was designed to be about 18" (exactly half the size of the large one). I wouldn't want to build it at 2 pages per sheet.

    nothing, you're amazing!

    For my two cents I would choose the Tube ship would be great.

    I'd say the Celestra or one of your ultra small Liners. Hang on, you never listed Cloud9. I wouldn't mind seeing that.

    I agree with SJ, you're amazing! Nice build there.

    1 for the Liner too. I'd love to see what you do with a 9" version. Lots of small parts there.

    So, which would you like to build Nothing?

    Holy Frak, just saw the instructions for the platform ship.

    You really made a beautiful ship there guys.:thumb:

    But I'm not gonna burn my fingers on that one for some time.

    Theo, What are the dimensions for buddy? None of these are done to a particular scale you know.

    It'd be kinda pointless as there's so much difference in size between say Colonial One and the Galactica. You'd have to have Galactica as big as a house just to have a half decent Colonial One if done to scale.

    And don't get me started with scaled Vipers!! LOL

    It's just for those who wonder how big is that ship.

    I was just thinking out loud!

    Ah,gotcha. :) Any pics of your Defender build?

    I'm hoping to finish my Carrier later so that I can start my X-Jet build.

    Not necessarily. A 1.4 meter version would be about 1:1000 scale, and a Colonial One at that scale is still about half an inch long. A Viper would be about half the size as the tiny one that Gearz made. Pegasus would be nearly two meters, though. So it can be done, without the need for a house-sized Galactica. :)

    True. But I said, a "decent" size Colonial One. 1/2"?? No thanks. LOL!

    Do-able, not not something I fancy. :)

    it looks like skip and coot59 are the only ones interested in seeing these built.
    scince skips already built a liner,i think ill do the tube ship. it is a realy simple one.i should be able to do it quickly.

    Cool buddy. I AM interested. :) I'll try and get my Defender, Shuttle and Liner done soon. Just keep getting sidetracked. Story of my life. My tombstone will read:

    "Here lies Skip, father of three and friend to many. He just kept getting sidetracked." LOL

    Space Park? Rising Star is the ships name, but it's also known as the Luxiry Liner and ring ship.

    Unless you're on about something else??

    Well, I have a Valkyrie mesh. I intend to one day go back to it and create a new papermodel of it. Large scale and more detailed. No idea when I'll get to do it though.

    I'm sure we all get there sometimes eh?
