Hi. You mention the large version is 5 pieces, yet I only see 3 large piece files. Those being flashshipN1_2.stl, flashshipN2_2.stl, and flashshipT1_3.stl?

I have not printed this version, I was asked long ago to break it up for a large print.

I am wondering if you would consider a modification of this?

can you make the fins up front 50% smaller and the fins in the back 200% larger?

it will look slightly out of scale but it should in theory FLY done like that.

I want to make a flying rocket out of it.

Perhaps you can make three 2mm holes on the flat surfaces, so you can use short pieces of filament as alignment pins? This is a beautiful model!

To make this somewhat universally resizable making the holes to fit filament would not work (once you sized it up or down)
I think in the case of this model I should have made a parting line which makes allignment more obvious (for example split on the ridges).
This was a revamp of an earlier design which a user had issues with when sized down. so I just made the interface flat.
I will probably revisit this model with allignment in mind. I will go back to the original art and try for a more "authentic" model (of this and other ships in the serials commander cody's looks pretty cool).

very nice, on your next space ship , may i suggest the cruiser from Forbidden Planet in Space mode or the Metaluna ship from This Island Earth.
