That’s a nice sized ship! That’s a great size to do add cool stuff like lights and smoke generators to.. I haven’t heard of that model company before but if it looks anything like their model then you are in business. Even if the model doesn’t have all the details youwant remember that as the builder you have full creative control over the project so anything can be added or made ‘better’. The fact that you spent five years on one of those ships is enough for you to have the passion to make a really cool model ship of a Flight 1 series‘happen’. Any questions that you have will be answered when they come so don’t worry about them now. Once you have the ship, study it and begin the process.
I’m sure your wife will be just fine once she gets used to it. Try to include her on the project and see if you can get her into it too.
