Pauln6, I'm always hunting on the internet for TMP E model photos. Post them! I'm presently in the stages of building mine too.
I'm only about a third done - just started on the shuttle bay but it's so fiddly.
I also snapped up a load of Citadel TMP figures from the 80s. Going to paint em too and have them in the foreground, including a few customs. I think I have enough for about 50 crew. I even did an Uhura head swap onto a security torso to make Thel'Darra (image left)
