That is interesting. Say, I notice there is an escape pod below the secondary hull docking port. Are you going to put any in your Refit?

I think right now I'm a bit too intimidated to put in anything else. I'm hoping to get a handle on the parts I'm already committed to before deciding on anything else.

I did do some work on the nacelle this week. Nothing is final here, but it's a rough idea of what I'm doing.

And an overall shot, remember nothing in the nacelle is glued yet which is why it's all a kilter. The only thing I'm really not happy with right now is that the warp core doesn't look straight. It is one continuous tube, and I made it one tube so that it would line up right from the neck to the engineering deck. some how it seems bent around the torpedo deck. It's hollow, so I think I can put a solid rod inside it to get it straight again.

I don't think that's your problem, I think it's that there is the lower angle of the opening in the neck and the buldge of the secondary hull. if you sight block them it looks straight. It's the angle that draws your eyes thus creating the illusion that the core is bent or crooked. see my "annotated" picture...

This is such a cool concept. It looks amazing. It also looks like it's REALLY hard to build. So much skill. :drool:
