@Mytran - that's an interesting thought, although my preliminary scaling came in at around 1143' so it might not be that much of a difference. I am re-doing that section though, so it could change
@Redfern - if I were going all Thermian on the TOS-R version of the Enterprise, then I would just explain it away as a part of the hull that did not need to be reinforced (or armored) to explain for the hull thinness
Thankfully, the original version just had that green plate
@Cary L Brown - 947' is pretty tight, but seems to be workable (so far
I do see two versions now, a 947' and a larger version scaled to the flight deck
It'll be fun!
