Re: A Two-Thirds 33 inch Enterprise

Shaw, this is a thing of beauty. Are you planning to coat the nacelle caps with a clear red, or will you leave them unpainted?

These I'm leaving unpainted... but also unattached. They will be removable and replaceable, so I plan on having a variety eventually.

The whole model has been extremely nerve racking in the fact that I knew that if I made a mistake, I couldn't afford to fix it in the relatively near future. So a lot of what you see is me avoiding problems rather than attempting things I would have wanted. When I'm in a better position to take some risks, I'll experiment with a few things I opted to set aside for now.

A last set of images from before I disassembled her to finish up on the nacelles. In these I have her next to the Constellation (which is basically the stock 22 inch kit).

Re: A Two-Thirds 33 inch Enterprise

The top looks right but I'm not sure the curve is right on the bottom of the saucer but it could be an optical illusion in your photos.

I always got the impression the tapering bottom 33" model looked like it had been pressed as if a scoop of mashed potatoes under a heavy pan, leaving a bit wider surface for the lower sensor dome to attach to.

Keep it up, though! Great work!

Top notch as always, Shaw. I also really love that display stand.

Heh. Yeah, love the stand. As long as it doesn't shake too much, right?

So this is pretty much the finished model... I figure I'll make another attempt at this model (at the same scale) in a few months applying what I learnt while building this one.

How fitting that I'm just listening to Giaccino's great Trek music...

A very beautiful model.

Now you need to take it outside and photograph it against the sky.
