You are already ahead of that by a long shot.

Current state of the saucer:

I'm happy with the spacing of the decks. I just need to get thigns cut cleaner, get things to line up better from deck to deck and start adding things like the doors around the outside of the ciscular portion of the deck.

Very daunting so I decided to tackle a smaller part.

I think I really like how this came out. I will need to re do it to fit further back in the neck rather than just behind the wall.

So what do you think? Does the turbo lift come down in front of the warp tube? or Behind?

Oh dude... I'm more impressed with your guts in cutting apart a 1:350 scale Enterprise!

Will you be putting in figures too? It would really add a lot to it I think.

wow, an extra deck or so could be fit, and yet still look awesome,
though I always thought the refit added a little to the Ent,
so when it is in refit or Ent-A version, it's a little bigger (20-30ft from nose to stern).

I don't know where you'd get 1:350 scaled people/alien figures to put inside the scene -
I'm reminded of those surgeons and other folks who carve figures into grains of rice or make ultra-tiny details...
I don't know of any architectural model figures which'd be just right for the project
---- all of that said, it would be the icing onto this very sweet cake that is being baked.

Turning to the neck and mid-ship connector,
are you showing a sectioned view of inside the neck? Sweet! :D
this will be interesting, to see which blueprints you opt to go with;
some have the neck being made of decks 90degree to the saucer or engineering hull,
whereas others suggest that there's lots of smaller decks all the way down.
Even rarer again, is that the neck structure is mostly empty or part of the 'machinery room' etc,
so there's a lot of directions to go there :D

forgive the meta-ness, though turning to the model itself.
is there any anti-sag framework involved?
a couple of the other 350 builders elsewhere, they put in a brass/metal framework to give the model a little extra strength. It's not a "must-have", unless the model is intended to be displayed from suspended wires and all hehehe

Wow! :drool:

I think that it is situated in front of the warp core. Just my opinion, of course, but the impulse engines make routing a turbolift shaft behind the warp core an impossibility. There is a set of simple blueprints at The Starfleet Museum (link) that shows pretty much what I have in mind.

Hobbylinc among others. There are a great many 1/350 scale models in the ship category. No recommendation BTW, just the first link I hit.

Tamiya puts out some 1:350 scale figures.

Of which I used a few for my (so far) singular completed 1/350 Enterprise. (Still working on that XCV).
