    She is looking Beautiful! I can't wait to see her completed. More so, I can't wait to get started on my own.

    Thanks Marman! I've been busy with it for a couple of months now (work and 2 kids 5 &b 1/2 and a 18 month old) tend to take out modelling time :arghh:. I'll keep posting pics as I go along.

    OK, upper hull complete, all greebles attached. Thought I'd go back (no pun intended) and do the warp nacelles. But, did the port one and make a slight bugger-up. (Can't blame the toddler this time :() Why are these nacelles giving me such a headache? :arghh:

    It's getting there! Had a busy weekend so didn't get much time to work on the Voyager. That said, port warp nacelle completed and attached! Starboard one is almost done. Then comes the under-side of the primary hull & final assembly!

    Thanks Rhaven, it's been a bit of a labour of love :) Funny though, of the 3 "next gen" series Voyager came in second on my list of favourites.

    I really like the way the shuttle landing pad came out in the back, and the 3 dimensional effects the windows give. Really nice! :)

    I am sorry to hear that.
    I know how you feel. I have done that quite a few times myself as well.

    GOOD LUCK WITH IT!!!

    Ok, here goes.... Lower section almost complete, greebled up (except for the phasers, worried I might squash them...) this is where it all went pear shaped last time. (attaching the parts to the cardboard support, top of picture)

    Finally! She is complete! Resting on what I call a "box" stand, (guess why :)) that I threw together last night.

    Decided to ditch the deltaflyer, I think it would obscure the shuttle-bay.

    I started her on the 28th may and really only getting a couple of hours each weekend, don't think I did too bad to finish today :)

    Now I have been "convinced" to do some Minions (despicable me) for the kids before I start anything else....
