This is another one of those ships that I consider a favorite.  I look forward to watching you bring it to life!  I wish you fun and success with the build and the contest!   8)
That model really tied the room together.

Well guys here is what I have planned for my Romulan Bird of Prey.  I have searched the internet and found a very interesting blueprint plans for this old bird that a few builders have done and they have looked awesome.  Here is a pic of the blue prints.  All of these pics are done as thumbnails so you can expand them.



I began creating some shuttle bays for the back of the ship from scratch. You can see the doors for them in the blueprints.  Below are some pics of what I have so far. I plan on using fiber optic cable to create some subdued lighting.








This last one you will see I added a little extra feature on this bay with the open doors.  I added on a hallway that I will base paint and light to give it some depth.

I have seen  and read about a build like your plans out on the net, and it's pretty awesome you are tackling this from those blueprints! Thank you for the image link as well!
When I first read about this modification, and saw some images of the scratch/mod of the shuttle bays, I must say I was blown away.

Man, I am so glad to see you taking on this specific mod! Good luck! I'll be watching your progress, and thanks again to taking on this specific aspect of the Warbird! Soooo awesome!

Great find on the plans.  Nice work on the shuttle bay.  That will really add to the model.
