No, the design will look good in any scale.

Belknap Update 14AUG20

The major hull components have been aligned and joined together: secondary, dorsal and lower primary half. A quick cabin and photon lighting test was done as I wrapped up this week's progress:





The warp nacelles were rigged for lighting and assembled:



New bridge and B/C deck was installed and lit:



The resin pylons were reskinned in styrene and shaped to a more airfoil cross section:

Holy Moley -- my favorite subject (Belknap) meets my favorite artist (Admiral Buck).

It's like Christmas, but it's 80degF outside.

Sooooo happy--

Belknap Update 2SEPT20:

Backlit slide transparencies have been produced as per usual on 35mm film for the Rec Room, VIP Suite and impulse grills.



The traditional Tycho black granite bases were resupplied at the shop. The brass collar was dropped in the 3/8" hole and felt feet added to the bottom:



Mr Vagabond Decals, Mike Hazlewood was kind enough to provide his expert aerospace CAD skills to the task of recreating a new and improved (more accurate too) navigation deflector and lighting reflector. I am currently having these printed by Shapeways in their frosted smooth plastic.





Some spotlights were added for the dorsal as well as the pylon self-illumination. There was not much room in the primary to install a proper brass tube and LED so a simple hole was drilled near the dorsal on either side and a 0805 SMD was dropped into it with a dab of CA and clear resin.





The pylon spots were achieved by drilling an angled hole and inserting a short brass tube to focus the 2mm tower LED. The tube will be filed flush to the hull.

The only criticism from me is the 'up the bump' support rod. I'm not sure where Else to mount one on this hull. I will be starting a 1/1000 Belknap soon and I want to do something different for the support rod. Hmmmm......

If youíre referring to the main support tube, itís on the center-of-gravity point. Since this is being lit, the hollow tube diameter is dictated by the power connector that passes through it. Certainly, I could have used a smaller diameter rod if this was not planned for lighting. Iím sure your 1000 can get by with thinner, solid rod.
