Serenity
« on: January 07, 2010, 03:40:55 pm »
Well, I've finally completed a project that I've been wanting to do since 9th grade when I did a book report on the Serenity novelisation. (I finally got around to it during Christmas Break of my freshman semester of college, I'm technically a sophmore now ). Any way, I decided to print it using the "Two pages per sheet" option to save cardstock and shelf space. I started construction last Saturday, following completion of mine and my dad's personal Firefly Marathon.

I am a bit of a Firefly nut (no, my avatar shouldn't give that away) and have been interested in trying a version of this ship.  Have looked at the paper model as an idea to use the parts as templates for a larger, plastic version.

You did a great job.

Great job.  It sure looks difficult; I think paper models are a bit beyond my ability but it's rewarding to see what YOU can do with one.

Excellent build Atlantis, paper based AND the size makes it moreso. As Doc Yo says, great montage too.
