    Hi,
    here are some Pictures from my latest build, Ron Caudillo's USS Enterprise. The Saucersection was a little bit difficult, but all in all everything fits. (I build the saucer hull three times[​IMG]). Needles to say, that I built also one of my typical Stands.
    I think the next model will be a "non-star-trek-model" [​IMG].

    Regards Loenf

    Super fine build there Loenf!

    Thanks for choosing to build my model. I know the saucer can be a bit of a challenge, I find that's the main problem with the starship models. You certainly did get it right!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Best Regards,
    Ron Caudillo

    Hi! And thanks for the commendations!
    Wow, .....POTW! That shows me that the effort of all three attempts for building the hull was worth the trouble.

    Forget the model, I like the display stand! That is way cool!

    How did you make it?

    Best Regards,

    Hi, I was the last 3 days a little bit busy, so I can answer your question only now.
    The stand is made of the chassis of an old DVD-Player. The rest is scratch-build: I glued several plastic/electronic parts on the chassis surface and finally i varnished it matt grey. For other model stands I used also chassis from an old 5.25 floppy drive, or the casing from an old hard disc.

    Regards Loenf
