I finished the core 3d model last night. I need to do some cleanup on a few things before I start to unfold it. But the look shouldn't change at all.

Full gallery here.

I started to unfold last night and already found a problem. The 3d model is done in real measurements, so the rings are 41.something meters across. Somehow I offset the faces on the inside of the ring by 6.59cm... and that caused everything to warp and not be symmetrical. Hopefully I can fix it easily tonight.

I started unfolding it last night at 1/96.



That is the warp ring former. Four of those are needed. At that size it is just too big to work with... so I have reluctantly resigned myself to the fact that it needs to be smaller. So I've tapped it down to 1/144. At 1/gross the parts are a lot more approachable. I hope to have some initial pictures of that by the end of today.

Ok, I have some initial images of the construction. I'll start a build thread for it.
