I'm not a "hater" of CGI by no means but sometimes physical just works better...like now. Great Job!!!

I like CGI fine - but most of the time my brain turns on the CGI alarm the moment I see it. I guess I've gotten too adept at spotting it.

Those old enough to have built one of the 70s AMT kits can only be jealous of how those engine nacelles are actually, uh, staying attached!

^And who'd have thought that the way to do it was just make the damn tabs longer and slots deeper?

Nice job! I started working on one of these too, but after all the time spent smoothing out the gridlines and trying to install the dang shuttlebay lights in the cramped secondary hull, I kinda needed to get away from the thing for awhile.

It's definitely a big project to make this thing look right.

btw, you should post this in the Fan Art forum too - that's where we usually post model kits.

Yes. That was my intention originally but I screwed up and put it in the wrong place. Should I post it again over in Fan Art or should I request it be moved? Seems silly to have it in two places.

BTW.... thanks for the nice comments everyone. This is my favorite build and I've been building models for over 35 years.

Sweet! That could be taken as an original shot from the series.
The original series visual effects were never this crystal-clear. That image is stupendous.
