Lovely model. How much does it weigh?

That, I don't know. I can carry it with one hand. It's primarily hollow throughout.

Ahh, okay. I figured it'd be a bit denser. Guess you gotta be extra careful with it!

I used cardstock weight paper at 111 pound thickness. It's pretty durable. The shell coating of wood glue gives it a little flex and added strength, so it can take a bump or two.

That is awesome! How many hours do you figure you've put into her so far?

Too many. I went a long way to making sure it was supported in places that model didn't call for. I should have kept a running long of the time and changes.

I am interested in acquiring a copy of the plans. I need a good line diagram that shows Serenity's angles so I can draw her accurately without stealing someone else's work by tracing over it in PS.

Building something in 3D is the best way to learn how to draw something realistically in 2D. The form just sinks in your head so you can "carve" it out of the blank sheet of paper. At least, that's how my head is wired. YMMV!

YJ, where can I get a copy of the plans? Free or paid, is immaterial. Looking at the photo, it looks like the sort of model I need for all the planes and angles.
