Here are some more shots of Challenger's amazing Midway model. Each of these different angles reveal how accurately detailed the ship is. Construction is being done with polystyrene and plastic. As soon as some thinner material comes in, even more intricate elements will be added. Some of the design blueprints are also visible in the background.
The ship is made off polystyrene and a plastic called Forex. I used 0.5 mm sheets for the main hull and 1 and 2 mm sheets for the frame. I started with the frame about two months ago. At the moment I am waiting for some thinner (0.1 - 0.3 mm) sheets for the plating and greebles.
Later I will color the ship (hope those damn sheets arrive soon! ^^). One of these pictures shows the Midway-model compared to the Galactica-model from federationmodels.
Best regards, Challenger
