    Hi guys. Which enterprises are best for build in same scale ?

    I think 1:1700 will be good,
    1701-A : Chris Magnells rescale of Shunichi Maniko's A - it is 1:1700
    1701-B : Clevers? What's scale of it? are there any others ?
    1701-C : Clevers again? original scale?
    1701-D : Clevers or ninjatoes ? scale?
    1701-E : i have one, don't know author nor scale, its 27 pages of parts and 7 pages of instructions in jpg...

    It will be great if anyone can help me, thanks...

    1:1700 would be a good scale for the Enterprises.

    1701-B: If it's Clever's it is *definitely* bigger than 1:1700. It's more like 1:850 scale.
    1701-C: Not sure if it's Clever's, but if it is, it's approximately 1:1400 scale.
    1701-D: Again, not sure if it's Clever's, but his is also 1:1400.
    1701-E: This is probably Zoushu's Sovereign, and if you have the second version, then it's 1:1700. If not, it's more like 1:1400.

    You should be able to tell if it's Clever's model; he always signs his name on the title page and has a warning page as well.

    Thank you, I have Clevers B,C and D ... just didn't know the scale.
    for E - I found it's version 3 - which is actualy downloadable from Zoshus site, He says its about 50% bigger then v.2
    Maybe I will try to rescale it by measuring saucer section.

    So, i will star today with A... It could be nice "timeline" for my new apartment :)

    As the man, who has built all the Enterprises and reworked the ships from Clever, i can the following say:

    -ENT-A (original from Makino) is in 1/1000

    -ENT-B (original from Clever) is in 1/1000, but not really buildable

    -ENT-B (reworked from me) is in 1/1000 (not available online)

    -ENT-C (original from Clever) is a little bit bigger than 1/1700, also not really buildable

    -ENT-C (reworked from me) is in 1/1700 (not available online)

    -ENT-D (a work from Clever and me) is in 1/1700 (available on Clever´s site)

    -ENT-E (version 2 from Zousho) is approx. in 1/1970, but i have a version in 1/1700

    -ENT-E (version 3 from Zousho) is approx. in 1/1220

    -NX-01/02 (original from Clever) is much bigger than 1/1700 (i guess also 1/1000) and not really buildable

    -NX-01/02 (reworked from me) is in 1/1700 but only for hardcore people (small parts!!!) (available on Clever´s site)


    Fact and important: you must print out the sheets on an A4 page and (/or if you have US letter size) not with the printer option "fit to page"!!!!!
    you can also measure the size over the saucer if you use the reference sites from Ex-astris:

    http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/

    and Gilso´s shipschematic:

    Ok here I am. Finally I decided for 1:1000 scale, so A will be about 30cm, D about 60...

    first I am building "A". I added some details - layering - on nacelles, pylons etc.

    It could be cleaner I know,
    some more layers, top, side, bottom... Could be cleaner but its better then flat box

    Layered "exit"

    This is better than flat paper...

    2 more layers and 3D dome here.

    I made this bottom part the right way - narrow at the back end.

    But now, I have problem with pylons - they were bending down under the weight of naceles, so I cut them off and need to figure out simple solution, Thinkink about bended wire or somethink like that...
