    Just adding this thread here as normally Im on PM instead. Have been building the excellent UHU02 Enterprise XI which I upscaled to 1:400 scale and during the build I stumbled on just a few small things that could be changed in order to improve this already excellent model.

    First things first, the build so far need some pictures...... 20140414_080132.jpg
    The bottom of the main hull with cutting knife for scale. It has been glued onto 1mm thick card to provide some strength to the hull.

    The top...
    Also glued onto 1mm card to give strength. Final dish is 43 cmm wide at this scale.

    Now the details added. I have done away with most of the tabs as at this size it allows you more than enough give to rely on separate tabs below the pieces. IMG_8901.JPG

    Next the secondary hull. Here is where I found the first little issue. Part S-23 has one of the folds swopped round so its an easy fix to correct it..... IMG_8913.JPG IMG_8915.JPG IMG_8920.JPG IMG_8921.JPG

    Next onto the nacelles, only a few small changes here, Part 63 and 74 are different on the underside where ther parts join. Part 74 is a much cleaner and easier build so I would suggest that both parts be changed to the same.
    Change 2.png Also the shading on parts 64 and 75 are not the same and needs to be adjusted.

    Change 3.png

    Lastly the nacelles themselves. Only a small adjustment to the structure to make the nacelles easier to build and ensure the nacelles are equal and straight.

    Just by moving the joint between the nacelle arm structure and the internal nacelles structure and the joint is much stronger and the parts automatically align. Change 4.png

    Very nice. Look like I'll have to put this in my model que. I'm not really a fan of the new ship though. They removed the bowling alley/Olympic-sized swimming pool under the shuttle craft hanger deck.

    This is an amazing build. when I get through my first build I think I will attempt to build this, if it's within the novice category.
