    Not a bad start, yo! And the name sounds nice.

    I'd name my frigate the UNSC Cherry Blossom. Just cause.

Please tell me you are putting some LEDs in that badboy.
    As for the name, that's a tough one, I would poll your audience.
    Thanks Gamemaster, i would LOVE to put running light in it and make little ships, but i already sealed most of it and the fighters and pelicans would be too small for me to make. Perhaps if i make another one, i can put lights in it and try my hand at sculpting and molding. :[

    I just might take a poll for the name, if not WINTER OF DISCONTENT then maybe ATLAS.
    Mooigha! :[ ]

    Nothing wrong with Cherry Blossom, i'm sure a Frigate with any other name would be as deadly. XD

    I'm quite excited, just two more weeks and i can start painting!

    You'll notice some holes in the frigate, i made them so air can get into the enclosed structures and dry the glue. They will be covered up.

    Also i'd like to thank everyone that has been leaving a comment behind, even if i don't respond to it, i do read them and greatly appreciate them. :]

    There are still many details that need to be added (the bridge for one) before i can start painting, but this past month of work has produced what i can now call a Frigate.

    I really like this build. I never really thought too hard about the vehicles in pepakura, but looking at them, they're great little models to have maybe hanging around the room. Especially if you have any siblings who love air or space crafts.
    ~When in doubt, improvise! Trust me, I do it 98% of my day.

    Are you going to paint/model any battle damage on the ship, or have it look fresh-from-the-drydock?

    Since it's my first build attempt at the frigate, it'll be shiny and new! Thanks for asking. :]

    Almost done! It sould be ready for the first coat of paint by sunday!
    There are still a few details and some major pieces to be made and added, but overall it is nearly complete. I didn't update for the last two weeks because i ran into some problems with the bridge and had to re-build it, also i hadn't finished the missile hatches, so an update then would have been pointless. For this update i drained the color just to equalize it and give an idea of what it will look like with the first coat of paint.

    For the Frigate's name, i've decided not to start a poll and to name it "Winter Of Discontent". Not that i wouldn't mind hearing other name ideas, but the name has really stuck with me and i can't see naming it anything else.

    Mooigha! :[ ]
