I got off my lazy rump and took a couple pictures:
Here's a comparison of three different saucers:
The top is the Polar Lights 1:1000 scale kit. Beneath that is an AMT model I stopped work on 15 years ago -- I found tools I'd lost in that box! Underneath all that is the 1:350 scale saucer.
Now, wouldn't it be a hoot to actually build one that way? With the little 1/537 or whatever bridge atop that huge 1/350 saucer?
I've often wondered about layering saucers from smallest offerening to biggest, only slicing and dicing a bit as the B/C decks get layered atop each other separately, then atop inlaid saucers.
I'd like to see a drawing of what that might look like, just for fun. I just wish Kerr's blueprints had been part of the kit.
Well that's the poor man's scale up version of new trek Enterprise.
I just slid mine together with rubber bands and tape, and the sucker is SOLID! Thick, heavy plastic; deep, firm tab-in-slot connections. She'll never sag.
And not one picture, eh? You are mean, man. Just mean...
Ah, good! I was beginning to wonder if I should rig up a brass armature for the secondary hull to nacelles.
What do you make of those plastic tabs along the edge of nacelle part 35 (the inside half of the nacelle)? I want to cut them off, but they almost look like intentional spacers.
Maybe I should read the instructions.
Pff- instructions are for suckers.
And those who want it done right.
