Rough Construction

Photo 26 I had to glue a support rod on the inside of the secondary hull, because it was starting to bow inwards. I don't know why it was doing this but I fixed the problem.

I cut out a piece of styrine sheet and glued it to cover the backside of the secondary hull. (side note: I cut off the last 1/4" tip of my left thumb while doing this part. I was carving the left edge of the hull, the knife slipped and !!! fwip !!! The tip was gone.)

Photo 28 I had just finished carving, cutting, puttying and sanding the back side of the hull.

Placed the arch on the top of the secondary hull. I used the underside of a Galaxy Class 1/2700 warp engine on top of the arch; It needed something. I wanted to go for the USS Reliant look as seen in Star Trek II, although this ship would have preceeded that movie by 15 to 20 years. Photo 29
