    Outstanding Detail, excellent build. and i just realized that i Definitely will have to shrink to at least 30% to build it in my place. I wish I had the room for that.

    Outstanding job Mate, you really set the bar high on this one. :)

    The beauty of this build reflects your patience, skill and painstaking love to detail. An incredible model by an amazing artist (and by an ingenious creator).

    We haven't had a "Model of the Month" for quite some time. I guess this February we might have a valid candidate for that (or even for our very first "Model of the Year"? :cool:).

    @skoda: You forgot to mention one thing. How much does it weigh???

    The original IS 30% smaller than the one form Skoda, as he scaled it up to DIN A3.

    The original A4-version is approx. 2 meters long when finished.

    Skoda, congratulations on finishing that beast. :cool:

    I hope to be done with my one soon, too. Just a few small parts left yet...

    This model is nothing sort of PHENAMINAL!!!

    I would have to agree with Revell-fan. I too an nominating this project for Model of the Year.

    Once in a while I drop into this thread to see what's happening and now it's ready......

    It's truly awesome and jaw-dropping.

    You worked a long time on this model but the result is out of this world !!!

    My wife would strangle me if I build such a huge ship but man what a beauty.

    Simply fantastic...


    Cheers and all the best

    The scale of this thing is .... wow
    I would think of re-scaling it so that is 50 cm when completed.
    Question is if you don't loose to much of the details then ...

    "Great minds think alike" - I made my one (which isn't complete yet, a few small parts have still to be done) detachable too, only that I'm just using magnets to hold them together when on display.

    You have to make some VFX shots with stars and planets in the background.
