Re: Jan. art challenge - Starship Discovery

Haven't finished it yet, but working on a similar engineering hull and nacelles for the 1/350 refit kit (four of these in my collection and spare parts galore); the aft section of the wedge is wider, with the interconnecting cargo bay expanded horizontally, with central bay doors, between two standard refit hangar bay sterns. In spite of that, the beam isn't much larger than the versions here.

My two largest influences when I was a kid was Kubrick/Clarke's '2001' and Whitfield's 'The Making of Star Trek'; 'Discovery'/NX-2001 was a natural name choice.
