Re: My take on the NX refit (WIP)

Hey all,
So, after looking long and hard look at the secondary hull, i realized that i had missed the most important part of a ship-the keel. my construction design was all wrong.
after progressing a little further on the saucer I realized how heavy it is, and that the structure wouldn't be able to hold it, nor could i run electrical
in its present state....
So I went to the LHS and picked up some model grade plywood, some balsa wood and a tube of zap a gap and started again from scratch.
this is where I am at now-

I have to wait for the electrical components to arrive before I skin it with balsa.
