I haven't decided yet if I will have a physical dish on this one, or the glowing area like the TMP ship. I'm leaning towards a dish...
Somewhere I saw one that "split the difference" - recess the TOS style dish into the secondary like TMP but keep the center spike, then illuminate behind the dish blue similar to the NX.
Yeah, that's kind of what I'm leaning towards... good idea.
Here's tonight's update... I did something I think is neat with the phaser banks... I get tired of the usual rectangular base with balls on it...
And the rest of my progress... it looks a little strange without the torpedo launcher in the neck.
Any suggestions about the neck? Have fun guys...
