I only just found this thread, and I have to say, that saucer is possibly the most beautiful piece of work that I've seen on this site. I almost cried. No I'm not, it's just really dusty in here. Shut up!
Man, I just stumbled across this while working on modeling Calvin as Spaceman Spiff. Great work! I already did his ship just last night. I love the level of detail you put into making yours. I wanted to go more akin to the ship as seen in the comic strip. I set it up for 3d print but yeah...I have a CNC too. Not a VF3 cause I am not that rich but I may just add more detail for my own build after seeing this. Thanks for the inspiration.
