A new set of plans with a twist, some friends and I have built our version of the ship in 3D. We started with the FJ plans, Which is still the best starting point, but then worked on reconciling with the show or to what would make more sense. Like adding an engineering section on the secondary hull to match the thinking of a second bridge. Working out the stairs so they don't go from one deck into the bedroom on the next, and adding in the access ladders shown in many of the episodes and much more.

When we started, we wanted to be able to walk from the top of the ship to the bottom, without having level loads. We worked this out and now we are changing the plans to more accurately match the show. So far we can use the turbo lift to navigate the ship or the stairs. The transporters work, and an almost complete shuttle bay, so we can jump into the shuttle and fly around the ship.

Here is a side cut of the our version of 1701.

Have a look at the rest of the site, and soon we are hoping to have a downloadable demo.
Great work so far
