That was the idea. The Constellation is a big ship. At least the size of the Constitution.

Which gives the Enterprise episode wherein the Stargazer is being towed by same- more of an idea of just how big the "D" was: Image

Ideas. I've been staring at this thing to two months and I am without ideas for detail painting.

So I'm tossing the question to the board. Anyone have any good ideas, model examples, etc. I'm doing the actual Constellation, a ship nit seen in canon. Gloves are pretty much off, but it should reflect the movie era.

Pimp my ship.

Just a thought- follow in someone else's footsteps:
