JJ Abram's 2009 Enterprise approx. 1/350 scale
« on: October 28, 2015, 01:51:44 pm »
I have been wanting to build a large scale Enterprise for a long time, but never had enough pieces. I finally got more pieces recently, so I have begun construction on this beast. Here is a sneak peak of what I have so far. I built the secondary hull, but after building the warp engine nacelle, I realized that I would have to totally rework and re-scale the secondary hull. Here is a before and after of the secondary hull (I have not started the saucer section yet). Let me know what you think! Just keep in mind that this is indeed a WIP and has already changed a bit from when I took this picture a few days ago. (old design is on the left, new design is on the right)

EDIT: This is the ship that I am building: http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0289/1534/products/Enterprise_2009-2_1756x988_39a14ea2-c3bc-4776-b6dd-8195e23c6949_1024x1024.jpg?v=1401841833

The secondary hull is the part at the bottom attached to the neck. The saucer section is (obviously) is on top of the neck and is also referred to as the primary hull.

EDIT #2: I have finally (pretty much) finished this mammoth project. It measures over 3 feet long. The saucer section isn't *quite* finished and there are a few details on the secondary hull that are not done either, but I think this is about as far as I'm going to go. This has taken almost a month to design and build, and at this point I'm ready to work on something else. Besides, it is too large to keep together, so I will be disassembling it shortly. I will put up a few more pics of close-ups to see how it was constructed at a later time. Let me know what you think.

Even though I've never watched Star Trek it's looking quite nice! :D

Sorry it's been so long since I updated this. I have been reworking the design multiple times to get the scale and position of the elements correct. I will post more pictures of the progress soon.
