    Dented - I have just started this build and so far the the rolled antennas have not been too very difficult. But they have been challenging.

    I can imagine, I was tempted to scale the ship down and make a 2 foot table top version, but those antennas are kinda scary, especially at the smaller scale :)

    I kind of thought the same thing and after rolling my first antenna that thought went right out the window. Since I am having some trouble finding A4 or Legal sized cardstock, I am having to print the model on letter sized paper. So my model will be about 91% the size of the original. But that is the only re-sizing I am doing.

    Yes, yes indeed it is massive. But it has lots of detail so its not massive for massive's sake. I would much rather build a massive model with lots of detail than a smaller model that isn't as detailed.

    well the Saluco as built can fit on your desk, you would just have to clear everything else off the desk. :twisted:

    I have finally started this project. Instead of starting with section 1, I started with the Antenna array and am working my way aft. Just finished the antenna array it doesn't look bad. I will post pics when I can.
