    Very nice, Jan. You should be very proud; she's beautiful! The way you're holding her in the first picture reminded me of a story I had read. In it, they said the Sulaco was originally a design for the blaster rifle but, after further deliberation, it became the assault ship. Now I see why. Thanks for sharing you pictures. - Tom
  3. This model looks a bit small to be in 1:500 scale. It should be approx. 144 cm long... just look how much bigger Jans version will become in 1:430.

    Well , in Wikipedia , they say that the length of the Sulaco is 385 meters.
    The length of my model is 75 centimeters.
    So the scale is 1/513.
    Is not it?

    Nicely done, my friend!:thumb: My hands would probably fall off after working on all those small parts sign1
  14. As often with filming miniatures there are different opinions about the length of SF ships. Jan Rukr, who is designing an incredible version in 1:430, takes the also given 735 meter length for true, as I do. Just look at the film and do some math (comparing stuff like the humans, the dropship, the dropship bay and the ship itself), 735 meters works for the Sulaco.
