After a whole lot of smaller Star Trek builds, it's time for something BIG. After a long wait, I'm finally starting Clever's Enterprise C. I have upscaled this model to 114% so she will be in scale with with my Rawen starships. This model has no instructions and no supplied reinforcements, so this will be an on-the-fly learning experience for me. I redid all the hull markings in Illustrator to my liking and so they'd be sharp when scaled up. As usual, I've started with the saucer. At this size, the outer rings of the saucer won't fit on one page, so I printed both sides and joined them together at the front center with a tab glued to the back. I wanted to avoid the overlaping sections look you get with tabs, so they all had to go. Once trimmed, I glued scrap paper to the edges from behind and cut my own tabs. Then I edge colored the tabs and edges and slowly built up the layers. Doing it this way is slow. It took me several hours just to do this part of the saucer. Hopefully, the work will pay off. For scale, the saucer is sitting on an 8.5x11 cutting mat next to my Rawen Enterprise.
