Nice! Are you working off a schematic from the show, or just making it up yourself?

Thank you, modelerdave!
First comment, this is special!
The references are of the show with several adjustments, because the show's scenario does not match with the AMT model especially in the access doors of the ship.
The next posts will show you why.

You're off to a good start. I like the detailing you are doing. Looking forward to more.

And, yes hand made from scratch!
I had to find out all the measurements, comparing with the height of the actors, shoulder width, etc., to find out the correct measurements

One of the difficulties (the first) I found: the ship's floor.
I had to sanding enough to level it. the photo does not show, but I used a piece of styrene to close the gaps. The external detailing was not compromised.

Are you building this as a cutaway, or will you have a hatch open to see the interior?

I am planning the two possibilities together but at the moment: removable back windows and front right access door.
In this case, various adjustments will be necessary. I'll show you later. :)

Next step: adjustments to crew cabin windows. In the episode "timescape" they has 90 degrees angle! and has some distance to the back windows. Imcompatible with the studio model. So what to do? like a BORG: Adapt!
I opted to close the last window and open another, in the position of the scenario, but maintaining the angle. this forced the reduction of the 'lateral sensor grid' (?); easy to fix.

Working the back windows of the ship, but as you can see, is very thick.
Do it again!

Corrections done. I took the time to cut the back part very carefully (it was better to correct the previous error and prepare the ceiling fitting) that will be detachable for viewing. It looks more like the scenery now, I guess.

Nice work with the windows. Are you going to fill them with something (like clear styrene) or leave them open?

Yes, I am choosing the most transparent and undistorted as possible
