Default 1/537 Scale Shangri-La

This is my first ever posting, so hopefully I'm doing this right…

I am working on a custom designed 1/537th scale motion-picture era cruiser. Scratch building from an existing 'smoothie' primary, building in styrene, cast resin parts and brass. If all goes well with this build my goal would be to rescale this in 1/350. I started this just a month or two ago and I'm about 30% through this build. Let's start with an early pic and the plans:

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! I recognize your work from FB as well. Seeing all of these great conversion and scratch mods has re-inspired me to dive back into starship building again. This one has developed pretty quickly and has helped release a lot of pent up design frustrations I've been musing over for some time.

I've seen this on FB as well----some reason, these builds always look better on a forum.
Can't wait to see this finished----very cool.

BTW------ nice armature!

Cool design, and looks like it's coming together. I really like seeing how you built the B/C deck extension.

Can you explain what's going on in the third photo of your second post? The image with the foam brush? Are those master that you then cast?

Thanks! Yes, that pic shows the balsa foam master carvings of the secondary upper and lower halves. They were coated in water based poly and primer and sanded before being molded in silicone.

Progress update: Warp pylon armature was fabricated, mounted to another section of telescoping square brass tubing and slid into place on the secondary hull. Resin half trimmed to fit over struts.
