    Just a heads-up for all the other trekkers on the forum, I'm about to kitbash the Centaur using parts from the Reliant and Excelsior. I'm trying to contact the creators of both kits to ask if I can post the resulting kit in the download section. Hopefully all will turn out well. For those of you who don't know about the Centaur:

    Ok, progress on the Centaur:

    As you can tell, the engines need work. I resized the giant registry already, and I realized after taking the pictures that I forgot the bottom of the saucer.

    Meanwhile, I took a short break to work on another Star Trek project. I'll let you all see a sneak peek:

    As you can see, its very small, 1/1900 scale, in fact. Next to it is Zousho's Defiant. Construction is mostly laminating layers of stock together, so I doubt it would look good in a larger scale. Sorry, I was just looking for a quick Attack Ship for my collection. I'll upload it later.

    Hey Paragon, since you are doing such a great job of creating these Star Trek models, what do you think about doing one, or both of these?

    Hi,
    the centaur model looks very good but I downloaded it and I have some problems with building because there are no laces and no instructions. How does it work?
