    well started the thing last night heres my progress so far.

    im fair sure that the build will be way below my normal standards but its been a long time since i did much paper modeling.

    anyway i plan on posting progress here as i accomplish it.

    i think i have decided to plate the thing have to check out the local craft store for sheets of grey paper that are appropriate . gonna do the ribs and the armor plates over the ribs will help the overall look a lot and cover the mistakes the photos dont show. should have pics in a few days...
    (edit) heres a pic of part of what i mean

    have that first componet coverd in ribs left out the bottom for now untill i see how the central bridge section fits exactly. i have shifted the plan slightly im gonna build all the major componets then start on covering and paneling i think i will have a greater sense of progress this way.

    Hey Deniper,

    I love seeing people build my models, and I've always wanted to see someone attempt this, so double thanks to you. Personally I think I'd go for just extra plates on the smaller size, but I'm really keen to see how your build turns out. It's one of my (pipe?)dreams to go back to the 3D model and redo the whole thing including ribs and all, but it's likely one of those dreams that will remain just a dream.

    Look forward to seeing your progress.

    thanks so much sjsquirrel im really thankfull that you took the time to make this model. ive been enjoying the build quite a lot.

    heres a couple of pics of current progress. and aftertonight i need to slowdown a little (have a commision i need to work on ...)

    i will be printing the nessary pages to get the armor plates soon and just to see what it looks like covering the forward upper bridge (tonight?) im also looking for a way to detail out the turret guns a little bit. thinking a second print with just the turret centers cut out and leave the guns a single layer.

    At Zealot

    It's available in the downloads section here at Zealot, and I could put it up on my website too. In fact, that's a great idea. I'll start on that now.
