Every build should up your skill and challenge you. This model is the very essence of all of those things. Lord knows it isn't accurate...B and C deck section's too tall...the sensor array is made from a dollar store wine glass base, and is totally innaccurate, and the thickness of the primary hull is about 1/8 of an inch too thick. The shuttle bay section is definitely not accurate. But you know what? I am pretty proud of this ship...I'd have to say that having this model is like fulfilling one of those life-long ambitions (as stupid as that sounds). I would have lost my mind if I had this when I was ten or eleven...and like so many other things that I do, I'm motivated by what I imagined was possible when I was a kid. This thing is lumpy in places, and far from uniform and perfect...but I'm really glad that I have it.
