I was watching one of the extended features of the OT DVD's today, and noticed in a scene someone is talking next to a 4-5 foot model of the Nebulon B Frigate (the Medical frigate from ROTJ, and the largest rebel ship at the end of ESB). Just wondering if anyone has ever built one, its been a favorite of mine for a while.

I am having one one built for me by scale solutions of Australia. There are a few projects that I would never get to myself and this is one of them. The model will be 4-5 ft. long. and is taking a year to do. It is being done the same way ILM did it. Sub and ship models for the front and layered decking in the rear. When I get some more pics I will post them here.

Is it going to be complete on both sides ? ( The ILM model was only finished on the left side )
Somewhere I have a picture of me standing next to it....

i started this idea a while back, wat you see here is now in styrene via vacforming, but sadly i shelved it for now as the project hurt my head, i may pick up on it someday, it just became a build of ifs and buts and major lack of reference, length was planned at 34".

There's an "x-wing strip" (casting of the entire top of fuselage of the SS x-wing) on the side of the rear portion, and to me it looks like there MIGHT be a couple of V8 pistons just forward of the window Luke and Leia look out of at the end. Oh, and lots of battleship/destroyer/sub hulls, but I don't know which ones specifically.

Saturn V's seem to make up the engine units for sure. The rear conning tower looks like a fairly 80's F1 airbox intake.
