    It looks like it will be a fun project for you to do and for the rest of us watch it build from the ground up.

    Are they using the model for filming or will it be CG?

    Very cool retro-futuristic design Steve.
    I was wondering how big this ship could really be based on the size of the cockpit; then in the video, you mention it's a multi-level cockpit so I can see this ship being much larger than I at first imagined.
    This is an exciting project. Definitely looking forward to more installments as you go along.

    Thanks guys I just heard from Doug and they do want to do some practical shots with the model. 95 percent will be CG but 5 % will be this model. So I guess this thread should be moved to Studio Scale.

    More later,

    Steve, as cool as watching you build kits is; I am really looking forward to another scratch build. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed and learned from your Enterprise and Daedalus builds. Will you be making molds for this similar to how you did the Enterprise?

    Currently I'm waiting for an email from Doug with the profile and cross section I need to get started. Everything else is in place to get started.

    I learn something from every video you post. This one was fascinating, and the process - in hindsight - seems so obvious.

    Maybe jumping ahead a bit, but how will the wiring for the lights go through the fuselage?

    Sorry Jerry no kits. They just aren't cost effective compared to all the work it takes to put one together. so many steps so little money. I will only offer build models from now on not unless someone picks me up and mass produces kits and I get a cut. and that's not likely!
