That is quite a project!
And it brings up that ages-old question, is larger easier than smaller?
Which has the equally ages-old answer of, it kinda depends.

Some parts are easier like the body of the model. but some of the other parts are being a little harder.. .The tough part was when I was printing parts, some of the bigger parts I had to print in sections then match them up and glue them together...Over all being of advance age I am starting to like the bigger stuff.

This is a great-looking centerpiece! I'm sure it will attract the people. Maybe some of them will be encouraged to start papermodeling themselves. Very well done!
