The sound your heard over there was my jaw hitting the ground when I saw these pictures! Incredible mastery of the..more than a hobby here...Artwork? I don't know what to call something so perfect!? Incredible!! Could you post your Star Fury? :inw:

Also, as the posts had many pictures, I had to approve them before they showed. This will happen for a short while, eventually the forum software will not "flag" your posts. So if you make the post and don't see it, give me a chance to approve it. I believe I am on the other side of the world, so there will be a time delay. :)

With all due respect, this does not look like paper in any way shape or form.
This truly looks like it is studio and museum quality.

You have done an ABSOLUTELY PHENAMINAL job on this model.

I look forward to seeing more of your AMAZING work.

WOW! It's 5:30 AM here and that's the first thing I've seen. What an INCREDIBLE way to start the day. Without a doubt, that is one of the nicest builds I have ever encountered. Your work and patience are incredible!

Well Done!

Brilliant model.

Zathros, what is the treshold, I mean how many pictures in a post cause the hiccup?

WOW. I have an Omega destroyer downloaded somewhere on my hard drive with similar level of detail (ok probably a bit less but not by much)
But i took one look of it and decided I don't want to build it THAT much. :)

Absolutely amazing!

!!! I see detail on your model I didn't know the original even had!
Actually I've read somewhere that the original (Lightwave maybe?) models had multiple object groups on them which the modellers could turn on and off for rendering to save some on the poly count if the model was farther away.
So most of the fine detail were probably only show on extreme close-ups.

Another tidbits I remember is that the Omegas rotating decks model were "borrowed" copy paste style from 2010 Odyssey Two.
The designer also wanted to create a much more complex engine section (because the rotating nature of the grav decks), but when he explained it to the others they just said just put a big engine on it, and work on the next model (they were short on time)

Just in case someone is interested :)

The Omega class destroyer is my all time favorite scifi design. I am stunned that your incredibly detailed model of it is made out of paper! WOW!

Thank-You, Thank-You, Thank-You

I am completely speechless and struck with awe. jawdrop Your attention to detail is just stunning.


And :agree1:with Bhelliom you definitely deserve build of the year-no wait make that the next 2 years.

When I get to my B5 fleet I'll be happy if mine turn out 10th as good as yours. :inw: Hope you don't mind if I use yours as reference when I get around to building this one.

Thanks for sharing your incredible build. I cant wait to see your Star Fury build.

Regards,

Rick

I'm becoming more and more frustrated about my poor attempt to made a decent model, and tired to say "Ashtouding", "Beautiful", "Amazing" and so on...

but I have to say "Ashtouding, Beautiful, Amazing work"! hats off!

technical question:

1) paper tickness?
2) you have used some non-paper parts on your model, like wire, plastic sprues and domes, and bits... painted before use? superglue?
3) the lattice structure of the "rotating" section is all made out of paper?

Yes all this paper. spherical surfaces. they are made from plastic foam aircraft.
the paper used the density of 200 g/m2
also used copper wire of various diameters for antennas and pipelines
