well, the next ones are going to be the enterprise TOS, A-F series. I don't see any point in lighting any up except the TOS, and maybe D or E I don't know yet, I'm partial to the B.

That really is impressive. I cut up the Klingon piece today. Just working on how each unfold, and seeing if it is plausible. I believe bulkheads will be necessary. The unfolded pieces are put together, virtually. Making such a compound radii part is quite difficult, it may not be feasible at a small scale. Not impossible, but not for the faint of heart! We'll see. :)a1.jpg a2.jpg :)

that's a lot of little pieces! im not sure that I understand yet. I would like to see more of the process please. sounds fantastically complicated, but maybe fun to do. like welding plates on a battleship. intriguing.

I'll try and get you more to wrap you head around it. The numbers are for instructions, and it just means, connect sides that have the same number. What I do is connect the parts after unfolding them. Wen they become something that intersects onto itself, you start a new section. At that point, you leave fewer "Dots" to show how it goes together. I really think that this would have to be a good size to be viable. It would be better to shave down a foam ball, and cut these out as plating to glue on. :)Klingon Bell.jpg

fantastic! I am starting to see how it works together, some of those pieces curve very well. that's a lot of work well done! thank you for such great effort!

remember to valley fold the edge of the tholian fins in the middle, I put two lines there, = fold in the middle of them.

Wow, quite a collection! I'm aiming to also do the Enterprise "series", from the NX-01 to the E. Not sure about the reboot one...

Can't make my mind up if I want to build it as I don't think the reboot has the true "Trek" feel :). That said, the template I have is UHU's....
