Mardis,

Your Enterprise is really coming together! I had no idea how much different her hull was during the "beehive" years... awesome work!

Thanks, more details this weekend.

The hull is done.Just need to add a few things on the hull and the hangar deck. Model Monkey anchors are nice. Just a tad bit big,but they look fine. Start on aircraft for the hangar bay and equipment. Happy Modeling!
