I'm embarrassed to admit how much I grok these details, no matter how trivial.
Thank you for the perpetual stream of scratchbuilding education. :D

Four down.

Seventy more to go.

Brilliant! That's how you get perfectly rectangular windows. Seems obvious in after-thought, but I've never seen anyone else do it.

It's certainly a pain in the ass to do. I'm sure I've seen this done before. In fact, Dave did a similar thing using plastic round tubing on his Hornet. I think that was the impetus. :)

These are some very early beginnings of the Wardroom / Rec Deck interior module. The gallery windows above are backed in a thin white diffusion sheet. The rectangular monitor below is backed in a dark transparent blue gel. The side walls will be composed of a series of slanted arches like a TMP era R/deck and curve into the ceiling. Furniture and greenery yet to be realized.

My, this is extremely ugly at this close range.

Outstanding! It's a real treat to see you adding some interior components as well.

"What in the wide, wide, world of sports is a-goin' on here?!"

The Sentinel Weekend Matinee continues with in-floor seating and overhead arches. A contour tool was used to capture the ceiling curve and mirror the profile to the four individual frames:

The inner sections of each arch were hollowed out with a Dremel and shaped with small files. I've placed these arches here temporarily until the deck and walls are painted first. A Sentinel logo will also adorn the sunken floor.

The remaining rectangular port frames were added to the bridge module. The penciled line along the bottom indicates the area that will be trimmed as it connects to the secondary hull.

Great idea recreating the windows using brass stock.

Thank you Tom. With so many window ports to open up, this seemed like a good solution in maintaining a consistent size and shape. While a slow process, it does pick up with speed as it goes along.

The Dreaded Scribing™ went off without a hitch thanks to an appropriate carbide tipped pen tool recently discovered in a tool box. Thankfully, the somewhat flat sides of the secondary master made the job easy.

The bow deflector tubes received an inner telescoping portion of brass for added detail:

Tomorrow begins the molding and casting of the secondary hull.

w00t!
Updates again- it's a late Christmas present!

How much do you deviate from your concept sketch to the practical model? And what drives the changes? (I'm assuming the answer is "How much of a pain the butt this next scribing would be...")
