An excellent Viper fighter craft from the original Battlestar Galactica, rendered by Flickr user 2 x 4.  I love the way the midbody tapers to the nosecone.  A clean, streamlined, faithful design.  Starbuck and Apollo would be proud!  (2×4)

My first build of 2013: the starship Enterprise.

My first build of 2013: the starship Enterprise.

It suddenly hit me why I bought all those Lego X-Pods back in the mid-2000’s: it’s because I thought the saucer parts would make for great primary hulls on Constitution-class ships from Star Trek.

It’s taken me this long to put together a version of the Enterprise, seen in the motion pictures; there’s about 50 pieces in this bad boy.
