Hi and welcome to the forum.



That looks really cool, any chance of a bunch of images before take off?
How big is it and how did you make it? I am guessing it is a scratch build?

Any chance you have construction photographs? I have a lot to learn about this subject.

Feel free to post anything else you have / are making.

Hi Captain Sci Fi,
Glad you like my little contribution!..
She is completely scratchbuilt from plasticard and is a little over 21 inches in length and weighs about 4.5 kilos!.
The engines light up, as do the cockpit panels and I have also added navigation lights and some fancy flashing lights in the nose ( not strictly accurate but it looks darn good).
I do have a complete build up on my site if you fancy a visit. (over 50 pics so not viable to copy across) plus there is also some of my other work.
Next project is a 1/72 scale Serenity with interior. (already built a 1/144 scale one with interior and lighting).
My site is called Stephanie's Interstellar Garage, please feel free to drop in and visit at chianna47.webs.com for a quick entry.
What part of Gloucestershire are you from?.I originally hale from near Cirencester, but now reside in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Amazing. I like the video game on the display base. It adds a sense of scale pulled from the movie. Well done!
