Lovely!

There's nothing like Star Trek ships imo. :)

Thank you incubus.   I'm going to start a second one at some point.  I'm giving this one to my brother.   Thank you for the compliment.  That really means a lot.

Shawn, this is stunning work! I am very jealous of how yours has turned out. Makes me want to build it all over again :)

These look great! And I am soooo not ready to tackle a big Enterprise. But I do have a Polar Lights 1:1000 scale refit to do at some point...and yes I plan to light it but I want to do a few non-lit models first once Colonial One is finished.

Thanks Dave! And yeah, I know what you mean - I've built the 1/000, but wasn't confident enough for lighting something so small! The 1/537 is quite good as a practice though, which I view all of my built as, for one day I will be a big enough boy to tackle the 1/350! :)

Hi WeeMoe,

I wish they were as straight as the look, but they aren't! haha



One of the gurus from this site helped me when I was starting out on my Reliant build, and I did try to use a 'rigid gig', this time, but it didn't quite work on the alignment as you can see from the photo. I think this was because I had already attached the pylons to the nacelles though rather than the gig - it did work for keeping them parallel along the length though. (thanks Steve!).

http://scifimodelaction.com/sfmaforum/index.php?topic=6842.0

It is an awful kit for attaching them, and I went for the method of attaching the nacelles to the pylons, and then seating those in the gig. I then glued the two halves of the upper secondary hull together, and attached those to both pylons (using a lot of epoxy and some metal rods pushed into the already sealed up pylons to add a bit of strength). Only once it had all had time to dry did I attach the nacelle assembly to the secondary hull.

Hope that makes sense!
Pete

Simi, you are a legend! Thank you so much for this! It has been bugging me for months having to use two boards!

Here is a short video of what you have helped me achieve
